Glass recycling collection on hold

Kia ora,

Unfortunately, our waste collection contractors are once again operating at reduced capacity due to COVID-19. As a result, glass collections will be put on hold from Monday 27 June for an estimated two weeks.

Rubbish and co-mingled recycling collections will be prioritised, but delays are likely.

For health and safety reasons, residents should bring their glass crates back inside off the street until normal service resumes. In the meantime, they can stockpile their glass or drop it off for free at the Recycling Station at the Southern Landfill. Otherwise, glass can be wrapped and put in general rubbish.

We apologise for this disruption and will be in touch again soon with another update.

Ngā mihi,

Waste Operations
