Wheelie bins

It is your responsibility to take care of your wheelie bins. Please put them out before 8.00am on your day of collection and bring them in that same day. Note that rubbish or recycling placed outside/around your bin will not be collected.

If you have a new property or have not received your wheelie bin please contact the Council on 03 756 9010. Loss or damage to wheelie bins will incur a replacement fee. Official Council rubbish bags will no longer be collected from the kerbside, these will however be accepted free of charge at our Transfer Stations.

For instructions on how to put your wheelie bin out properly please view the collection booklet.

Remember to be considerate of the people collecting Westland’s waste and not put out anything that may cause them harm. Please remember —

  • No hazardous or injurious materials
  • If in doubt, leave it out!
  • Bin contents should be no heavier than 150kg.

Please note that the collection schedule runs as normal on all public holidays except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and New Year's Day Holiday.
