Urban Collection


​We're making changes to the urban kerbside recycling and refuse collection service. You can read about the changes, what we are delivering instead of bags this year and how the new system will work on our Changes to kerbside recycling and refuse collection page.​​

​​​When will you collect my rubbish?

​The kerbside collection in the Opotiki urban area is on Tuesday mornings.

Please have your rubbish out by 8.00am.​

What area is included in the urban collection?

The urban collection area is from Paerata Ridge Road in the west to Stoney Creek Road in the east.

How should I sort my rubbish?

Please see our 7 Steps to Perfect Household Waste Collection​ for guidance on how to separate​ your rubbish before collection.

What if I have no council rubbish bags?

Each year around July we deliver 52 bags to each residence in the urban collection area.

Additional black Council rubbish bags can be purchased from the Council office at 108 St John Street, Opotiki. The cost per bag is $1.00.​​

If you think you haven't received your bags for the year and these normally come directly to you, please contact our Customer Services team on 07 3153030 and they will be able to check this for you.

Where can I get a black recycling bin?

You can purchase one from our main Council office at 108 St John Street Opotiki.  They are $10.00 each.
