New Rubbish & Recycling Collection
The new and improved rubbish and recycling collection begins on 1 October.
The three district council's in Taranaki (New Plymouth, Stratford and South Taranaki) have banded together to save you money in a region-wide approach to our rubbish. From 1 October, Envirowaste will be taking charge of our weekly pick up instead of Waste Management. What this means is that we'll be recycling a greater range of recyclables and introducing a separate glass collection which will result in less going to the landfill.
Your new crate
Each household on the collection route will be delivered a new blue crate to your property during September. This will be for glass only. Please store it safely away until 1 October.
If you put this crate out before 1 October it will not be picked up.
