Get Your Bins Right

A complete kerbside collection kit for your whare includes 2 recycling crates, a food waste container and kitchen caddy, and if you’re landfilling, using either a blue or green pre-paid landfill bag. If you’re building a new home you can get your recycling crates and food waste containment from the council building / library in town. We have 3 trucks that come around to service the kerbside collection and each crew collects different items for their truck. So if you see a truck come by and there’s something left behind, kei te pai!


Use the official green recycling crates only for kerbside recycling. Max 2 crates per household. 1 crate is for glass, 1 crate is for mixed items: Plastics #1, #2, #5 + clear film soft plastics, Aluminium and Tin cans. Cardboard and Clean Paper please stack on the side in a pile no bigger than the size of a recycling crate. Write your address on your crate/s to save them going walking.


Prepaid blue or green bags can be purchased from local retail outlets. Please put bags out to kerb away from bushes, or vehicles if you can. Think about the whanau collecting, and keep bags hazard free: Wrap broken glass, and dispose of any medical equipment (needles etc) at Raglan Medical. Maximum weight of bags is 15kg.

Food Waste

Every week put your green bin on the kerbside with the handle in a locked position. Food waste inside must be bagged in our Xtreme Zero Waste starch bags, not loose. More food waste bags are available by popping a note in your kerbside bin asking for more, or at Kāhu’s Nest.

*Everyone can come on up to our site to drop off any household recycling and prepaid bags, for free.
