The Waste Collection PROJECT
Welcome to Council's web page dedicated to the roll out of wheelie Bins in the South Waikato.
The introduction of wheelie bins for rubbish and recycling was made in 2019 following overwhelming support for this option from the community. The new service was due to be introduced last year but was postponed due to COVID.
The vast majority of wheelie bins have been delivered to our urban areas. We would like to thank our urban residents for their patience during this very tight delivery schedule.
We know that there are still some properties that haven't had bins delivered and some properties have had duplicate sets delivered. Please call Council on 07 885 0340 if this applies to your property.
From Monday 6 September the wheelie bin service started. From this date green bags will no longer be collected kerbside.
Basic timeline is far below.
