Christchurch bins app

The Christchurch bins app makes it easy to access information relating to the bin and waste disposal service in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.

From 1 February 2024, there’ll be a few changes for Christchurch and Banks Peninsula residents to keep in mind when sorting their recycling, organics and rubbish.

New national standards to kerbside bin collections are in place, which means most Kiwis can now sort their recycling, organics and rubbish in the same way.

To help you prepare, we’ve updated our webpages with the new guidelines.

To find out more, visit our Kerbside changes webpage.
