Auckland Council has signed new contracts for waste collections across mainland Auckland for the next 10 years.

Rubbish collectors will be using new and improved routing, so residents may notice the rubbish truck arriving at a different time of the day.

Please ensure you place your bin out by 7am on your collection day to avoid missing your pick-up.

This is a huge step forward in the council’s move to make our domestic waste collection services consistent across the region and reduce waste

Share this with your neighbour, this isn't the best time of year to miss out on your bin collections!

This looks like a great way to get stuck in and help the environment around our bays. See information below and the Facebook link for more information.

Save the date:
Sunday 8th November

10am - 12/1pm

Meet: Outside Mission Bay playground - beachside

BYO: rubbish sacks (1 recycling, 1 general rubbish)

Help: make our beaches beautiful again - starting at Mission Bay beach we will walk the bays picking up rubbish for removal.

At this stage people helping will need to be responsible for disposing of the rubbish collected. Will chat with council on how I can potentially make that easier.

Finish: With a cold beer at Moretons Bar & Restauran
