Pines Resource Recovery Park / Transfer Station
The Pines Resource Recovery Park is open and you will no longer need to book a timeslot to visit. Please observe physical distancing at the site.
Kerbside Collection and Drop-off Points
All kerbside collection is running as normal. Please continue to separate your rubbish, recycling and organics.
There has been a change to plastic acceptance criteria. We are now only able to accept plastics numbers 1, 2 and 5. Plastics 3, 4, 6 and 7 will need to go into the rubbish.
Bins are being delivered and repaired as normal.
Drop-off points for residents that are not on the collection route can still be used, as can the public recycling and rubbish facilities at Castle Hill Village, Arthur’s Pass and Lake Coleridge. Please follow current Ministry of Health guidelines around social distancing and follow a one-in, one-out process. We recommend bringing and using hand sanitiser before and after using these.
The RFID tagging project will recommence on 15 June. We have been sending out flyers to the areas where the tagging crew will be working.
