Opt into the Kerbside Collection Service


Recycling Programme for Schools

Schools and Early Learning Centres can receive a kerbside recycling service free of charge. The maximum number of bins is one per three classrooms. Please note this is a recycling service only.

The bins must be kept in a secure place on the school grounds, and placed on the kerbside outside the school for collection by 6:00am on collection day. The bins will be collected fortnightly on their allocated collection day.  

When you apply you will be given an information pack about the service and learning resources to use in the classroom.

This programme is intended to encourage students to participate in recycling and to support the New Zealand Curriculum principles and values of sustainability, community engagement and participation. It is not intended to address all the recycling needs of the early learning centre or school. A commercial collection service may also be required.
