Kapiti services update

Kapiti 23/06/2020 - 31/07/2020

As from 1 July 2020, Kāpiti Coast transfer stations and recycling collectors will only accept plastics numbered 1, 2 and 5 for recycling. Plastics numbered 1, 2 and 5 include products such as milk bottles and ice cream containers, which are highly recyclable and make up the majority of plastics used in New Zealand (approximately 87%).

Plastics numbered 3, 4, 6 and 7 will no longer be accepted and therefore we ask, that you no longer put these items in your recycling bin. These items include soft plastics like bread bags and biscuit packaging. Please note that there are no changes to other types of recycling that will be collected such as paper, cardboard, glass and cans. 

EnviroWaste remains committed to providing a recycling service to Kāpiti residents, however this is only achievable if there is an end market for the product itself. 

For more information, please call 0800 240 120 to speak with one of our customer services team.
