IWK Household Recycling Collections

  • Any recycling that is dropped off at the yard or collected kerbside cannot be contaminated. We cannot process dirty recycling. 

  • Place cans & plastic recyclables in your large black & green crate, and glass in the smaller green crate.

  • Cardboard can be flattened, tied up and placed under your crates.

  • Remember to Wash & Squash, and have your recycling out to the kerbside by 7am

  • Our collection team has been split up to cover the route, so if you see your crates have been collected, but your paper is still there, don't worry, our team will be there and everything will be picked up on Thursday.

Any questions give us a call on 03 319 7148

Rural Recycling

For our rural residents we have recycle stations placed throughout the district that are serviced by our collection team throughout the week. Like the kerbside collection, they are for household amounts of recycling.

Stations are located at:

  • Suburban Primary School, Schoolhouse Road

  • Lynton Downs Primary School, Inland Road

  • Kekerengu, SH1
