Every area of Auckland is allocated a week each year for an on-property inorganic collection. One collection of up to 1m3 of inorganic material is included in your property’s rates.
You can book a collection:
• Online at aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/inorganic
• Over the phone 09 301 0101
• Or visit one of our service centres
Once you’ve made a booking, you’ll be given a timeframe for when collections will happen in your area. You can book as early as you like and cancel if you no longer need the service. Book your inorganic collection today and help reduce waste going to landfill.
