Moving house or major reno?

A house move or renovation is the perfect time to clear out your garage and attic. Whether you’re getting rid of that broken furniture you’ve been meaning to fix, or piles of old magazines, Waste Management has the right size skip bin and a one-off collection to help you make a fresh start.



We are committed to providing you with exceptional service. As experts in our field, we offer waste and environmental services tailored and personal to your business or home. We have been supporting and looking after New Zealanders waste for over 30 years, ensuring it is disposed of in the most environmentally friendly and future focussed way possible – for a more sustainable tomorrow.


Why Waste Management

By choosing Waste Management, you’re partnering with a company that’s using innovation. We believe everything Kiwis throw out can go on being useful. So, we sort, redirect, neutralise, and use waste in surprising ways. We are always investing in technology to get even better at managing our collection, recycling, and landfill facilities - for a more sustainable tomorrow.

Skip bin

General waste

From 2m3 mini skips to 10m3 extra-large bins, we have the right waste solution to suit the scale of your project, and your available space.

Garden waste

New veggie garden or a dream landscape - Waste Management has a range of skip bins for garden projects big and small. We’re happy to take that green waste off your property, and where possible recycle it into Living Earth compost for other gardeners to dig into in future. 


Our shallow, construction-friendly skips provide a strong, easy to load solution for your unwanted waste like concrete, bricks, stones and tiles.

Wellington Customers: Due to the recent Cleanfill closure in the region, Cleanfill will be taken to landfill as waste until further notice
