Inorganic collections: what you need to know


This is paid for under your targeted rates.

Auckland Council’s new and improved inorganic collection service started in select areas in September. It will help charities and community recyclers make the most of Aucklanders’ pre-loved possessions.

From September to November 2015, we will introduce the new service on a week-by-week basis to selected parts of North Shore, Rodney and Waitakere. Look out for a flyer in your letterbox any time during this period to let you know that your property is included and when your collection will be.
