Waste collection: Red (general) & Blue (glass)

November 30, 2026

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 12:00 AM on Monday, repeating indefinitely

Red bin (general rubbish)
Non recyclable rubbish

Your rubbish bin / ipupara

This is your wheelie bin with the red lid, and it’s just for rubbish.

When green waste goes to landfill it creates methane, a greenhouse gas much more potent than carbon dioxide.
Instead of putting it in your red bin, consider composting or using our green waste collection.
Did you know? I get collected weekly.


Blue bin (glass)Your glass recycling crate / pouaka kara- he

This is your blue open-top crate, which is just for glass


  • Glass bottles
  • Glass jars

Remember: Rinse bottles and jars to make sure they’re clean.


  • Lids
  • Tableware and Pyrex
  • Broken glass
  • Light bulbs
  • Mirrors or window glass

Tip: One person’s waste is another’s treasure. Keep an eye out on noticeboards and social media for opportunities to save useable items from going to landfill.
