Buller District Council

Kerbside collection

Your wheelie bin has a label on the side like the image below. This label has your address on it, a bin number – as all bins are registered to the address not the people, and the day & week of your collection. Therefore as per the label example below, this person’s refuse collection day would be every Tuesday, and their recycling would be collected on Tuesdays that are week 1. All bins received an information pack that included a recycling calendar, this is what you use to establish when to put your recycling out for collection. So if you are Tuesdays and recycling is on week 1 then you put your recycling bins out on Tuesday 2 February 2021. The next time you put your bin out for collection is then Tuesday 23 February 2021, and so on in a fortnightly pattern.

*Please note that both sides of Brougham Street in Westport are now collected on Mondays. Recycling collection in the week 1 and week 2 pattern remains the same.
