About Kerbside Collections
How it works
Collections alternate between a Para | Rubbish week and a Hangarua | Recycling week.
Your Para Kai | Food Scraps will be collected every week.
✓ Please keep lids closed and don’t overfill bins.
✓ Place bins with the logo facing towards the road.
✓ Put them as close as possible to the kerb with about 30cm between each bin so the trucks can pick them up.
If you’re in a flat, cul-de-sac or shared driveway, talk to your neighbours about where you can put your bins. Sometimes it may mean putting your bin outside a neighbour's property.
Para | Rubbish week
General rubbish and food scraps will be collected.
Please place your red topped rubbish wheelie bin with your PAYT tag attached, and your green food scraps bin out at your kerbside by 7:30am on your collection day.
Important Date: From Monday 20 November, only rubbish bins that have the following will be collected:
1. A green Hauraki District Council Pay As You Throw (PAYT) tag
2. The PAYT is thread through the handle of the red bin lid and the black lug beside it (this is so the tag will tear apart when the bid is turned upside down. If the tag is only on one handle, it won't tear and will remain on the lid, meaning it could be used again).
3. To make sure your tag stays secure on your bin, follow instructions on the tag. Tags that are not secured properly are likely to blow off.
Hangarua | Recycling week
Mixed recycling, glass recycling and food scraps will be collected.
Please place your yellow topped recycling wheelie bin, your blue glass recycling crate and your green food scraps bin out at your kerbside by 7:30am on your collection day.
