Request a different size bin

You should know

Before you start

Complete this online form to upsize or downsize your bin.

To exchange to an 80-litre rubbish bin in Manukau, Central Auckland or Waiheke Island, call us on 09 301 0101. For all other bin exchanges use this form.

Not all bin sizes are available in all areas. We are working to standardise this service.

Check your email or texts for messages about bin delivery or when to put your empty bin out for us to collect.

To help us process your request faster, you can provide your bin serial number – if known.

You will receive a response within seven working days on the progress of your bin request.

If you're renting in Manukau or Central, you need to contact your landlord or property manager and ask them to request a different size rubbish bin on your behalf. Only the ratepayer for the property can request a change to your rubbish bin size.

For bin size options and charges, see Rubbish and recycling bin options and charges.
