Waste Free with Kate Meads

We are proud to sponsor waste free workshops with Kate Meads. Kate's workshops are a fun, motivational and inspiring way to help with your waste reduction journey.

Waste Free Parenting workshop is a humorous, entertaining and inspirational event full of tips and ideas around ways you can minimise waste in your home, especially with young children in the house.

Waste Free Living workshop is for everyone who wants to reduce their waste but doesn't know where to start, as well as for those who want to learn more about where their waste goes. The waste industry is an ever-changing environment and the rules on the how, where and why can be confusing.

You receive a free pack bursting with waste minimisation products with each ticket.

AgRecovery One Stop Shop Farm Waste Events & Chemical Collections

With free or subsidised recovery and disposal for more than 3,000 products, AgRecovery's chemical recovery programme provides a perfect opportunity to ensure unwanted or expired agrichemicals are safely and properly disposed of.

Selwyn District Council is proud to support another farm chemical collection in the district in June 2022. Bookings close on 27 May 2022.

Take an inventory of your chemicals and register by visiting AgRecovery's website or calling 0800 247 326.

Depending on interest and booking numbers, this event may be on-farm collection or possibly located at a drop-off location within the district. A location will be provided to registered attendees prior to the event.

Ellesmere and Malvern Community Bulky Waste/Recycling Drop-off Days

We provide periodic community drop-off days at locations in Ellesmere and Malvern. These provide better accessibility and proximity to our communities located at a more considerable distance from our Pines Resource Recovery Park.

We are gradually expanding the range of materials accepted at these events.

Please visit our recycling days page for up-to-date information on upcoming events.
