Thames/Coromandel - Recycling information

What to put in the wheelie-bin?

  • Hard plastics (numbers 1-7). Soft plastics such as grocery shopping bags aren't recycled here. Some shops in Auckland and Hamilton and elsewhere have Love NZ Soft Plastics Recycling bins where you can leave plastic bags for recycling. Check for locations.
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Tin cans


What to put in the Green Crate?

Glass bottle and jars only.

If you need an extra crate or two for glass recycling, you can purchase them from our Service Centres for only $15.00.

Make sure your crate is not overflowing, or it will not be collected. This is to avoid bottles and jars slipping out and breaking on the pavement.
