Information about how and where to dispose of hazardous waste, soft plastics and more

Hazardous Waste

Hazardous wastes are unwanted chemicals or materials which have dangerous properties such as corrosiveness, explosiveness, flammability, toxicity, ecotoxicity or capacity to oxidise.

Soft Plastics

Unfortunately there is no alternative to recycle soft plastics at this time, and soft plastics are not accepted in the Council's kerbside recycling bins or in the plastic bins at the transfer stations.

Transfer Stations

The Council has two transfer stations that provide a range of waste disposal, diversion and recycling services.

The transfer stations are located in Rangiora and Oxford.
