From Monday 24 January, Porirua City is at the red setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, as protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
👉 Check our online recycling calendar to find out when to put your bins out and print a copy of your zone calendar.
Unfortunately, we keep seeing the wrong things being put into your recycling bins. So check out this video to clear things up about what goes in your recycling bins… and what stays OUT!
We provide each household with two bins and each bin has a unique serial number, specific to your address.
Please note that aerosol cans such as fly spray, spray deodorant, cream cans etc can’t be recycled as they are under pressure and considered hazardous. They should be placed in rubbish bags.
Created by work experience students Leiliana and Meliana. The students were briefed by Dee Jones, Zero Waste Coordinator, Porirua Council, who discussed recycling challenges and two simple messages, “recycle your ones and twos” and “keep it clean”. Together the Leiliana and Meliana created the following video.
