  • Mondays from 7.30am

Waipawa Residents

Recycling Advice

  • There is no longer a requirement to put recycling into supermarket bags as the recycling contractors will separate items at the recovery centre.
  • Separate your bottles from your other recycling. Put all non-bottle recycling into your recycling bin. Glass bottles can be placed in a separate container, box or crate or on top of your other recycling.
  • All rigid plastic bottles/packaging numbered 1-6 are now accepted for recycling.
  • Do NOT include polystyrene, meat trays, cling wrap, plastic bags or plastic toys.
  • Squash cans and plastic bottles to make more room.
  • If your recycling is not picked up, a pink or orange sticker will give the reason why e.g. The products were not clean and were therefore unhygienic OR there was broken glass etc.
  • Recycling bins are available from your nearest CHBDC Service Centre. If your bin is too heavy, secure the recyclable materials into plastic bags and put them out on the footpath. The bin is for containment and convenience - if you feel the materials are safe on their own, you do not have to use the bin.

Recycling oil, paint & e-waste

The following recycling faciitities are available at the Waipukurau Transfer Station:

Oil recycling

Used oil is collected at the Waipukurau Transfer Station free of charge, stored in a purpose built and bunded storage tank and collected by Exoil NZ a division of Petroleum Services. The collected oil is re-processed where required and then used as a fuel in high temperature industrical burning applications such as asphalt plants and timber production. These applications require stringent controls over the quality of used oil consumed and must meet emission standards as consented by local authorities taking what has traditionally been considered a waste product and giving it a second life as a consented industrial fuel. This reduces the demand on raw fuel fossil fuels and supports primary New Zealand industries. You can visit the NZ Petroleum Services website for more information on oil recycling.

Paint recycling

The used paint is collected at the Waipukurau Transfer Station and stored in purpose built storage bins. Where possible, usable paint will be put to one side for use by the community and the remainder will be transported to the Enviropaints manufacturing plant in Otaki where it is recycled back into paint for use on graffiti, paint for residential homes as well as farm and commercial buildings. You can visit the Enviropaints website for more information on paint recycling.
