Recycling services for household quantities are available in Auckland except for the former Manukau City Council area.
Auckland Inner CBD
- For recycling, use clear council plastic bags.
- We collect cardboard separately. Flatten the cardboard and place on the kerb next to your recycling. Make sure these are placed in a way that they will not be blown away.
- Recycling and cardboard are collected twice daily (once on Sundays).
- Know the recycling guidelines for inner CBD on Make the Most of Waste Recycling guides.
The recycling service is provided in comingled (plastic, glass, cans, paper and cardboard in the same bin) wheelie bins collected fortnightly.
