Tell me about Greenwaste

We accept all quantities of Greenwaste over the weighbridge ($80.00 per tonne) and it goes through the process of composting.

Items we can’t compost:
Cabbage tree, yukkas, bamboo and flax (Harakeke) leaves


Due to the size of the shredder we have on site we can’t accept tree  stumps any wider than 3 inches in diameter.

When the compost is ready we sell it by the scoop for $60, roughly 1m3 or in 40L bags for $6.00. It is sold when the compost is ready and isn’t always available. You are welcome to call ahead before you come up with your trailer to make sure there is some available on site.

Metals etc
IWK Metal and E-Waste Drop-off

Visit our metal area by the weighbridge to drop off various metal products and objects. The bins are clearly labelled for splitting various metals. As well as accepting old car and household batteries we accept computers, TVs, printers, cars, fridges and various other metals and electrical items. Larger loads need to come over the weighbridge so we can inspect your load, lend you a hi-vis vest, sign you in and give you a brief induction so you can make your way down to the scrap metal area. If you are unsure then just flag down one of our friendly staff and they will be happy to help. 

IWK Electrical Goods

From August 2018, we are able to sell small kitchen electrical goods in our shop. All the items have been tagged and tested for electrical compliance by our staff on site. This is awesome news for diversion! We a huge range of products that come into the shop and we can put them back into the community, giving them a second life.

Our shop space is so close and we are excited about what we will be able to offer - we will update our progress on our home page as we near closer to the opening date
