Possible Collection Delays in the lead-up to 1 July 2021

Tauranga City Council (TCC) and Western Bay of Plenty District Council (WBoPDC) are introducing kerbside waste collections for all households from 1 July 2021.

For TCC this will include general waste, recycling, glass, food waste and an opt-in option for garden waste. In the WBoPDC region this will include general waste, recycling, glass and food (conditions apply – refer to applicable council website for more information).

It means Waste Management will be stopping residential wheelie bin services after 1 July 2021. Until then, we will continue to service customers as normal, however there may be some pick-up delays due to a driver shortage as our team moves on to other work.

If your bin is not collected on its scheduled day, please leave it kerbside and we’ll pick it up the next day.

Please note, customers should leave their wheelie bin kerbside after their final collection before 1 July, and we will send a truck to take it away.
