There are no public rubbish or recycling bins on Kawau Island.
A secure enclosure is available for residents and property owners to dispose of their household rubbish and recycling.
The enclosure has a pin-code entry-gate. The pin-code combination has been sent to residents, ratepayers and the Kawau Island Residents and Ratepayers' Association (KIRRA).
Excess rubbish, recycling and larger items can be taken to local community recycling centres:
Information for visitors
The large rubbish and recycling bins at Sandspit previously used by the public have been removed.
Visitors to the island are required to take their rubbish and recycling waste home with them.
Contact us to report any issues with the enclosure or for further queries.
