Was your collection missed?
Need a new bin?
A message from our contractors...
Thank you for your support over the past month.
Our new team, bins and systems are in place, but you may have noticed some of our food waste and glass recycling collections are running behind schedule.
This is because we have designed and commissioned new trucks to pick up your food waste and glass recycling at the same time. It’s a NZ-first innovation which means fewer trucks on the road, less carbon emissions and a healthier environment.
Unfortunately, there has been a holdup with our truck supplier which means we don’t currently have all the collection vehicles we need.
We’re very disappointed that we have not been able to deliver the expected level of service we wanted to. Please accept our sincere apologies.
The full consignment of trucks is scheduled to be delivered over the next few weeks, meaning we’ll soon be collecting all your waste and recycling on time, every time.
For now, if your collections are running behind schedule, please leave your bins out and we’ll collect them the next day.
The team wants to thank you for your patience, understanding and continuing support of our drivers. It means a lot.
- The team at Waste Management, supported by Matamata Piako District Council
