Wheelie confused? Don't worry, we've got you covered ♻️

If your bin has a number 2, it's over to you - put your recycling wheelie bin and rubbish bags out on Monday.
If your bin has a number 1, your time is yet to come - put your glass crates and rubbish bags out on Monday.

Still unsure? Refer to our handy collection map below, or if you're still in doubt, put both out as only the correct one will be collected.

Please note that the contractors will be continuing to audit the contents of your wheelie bins for the next 2 weeks as a way of helping you understand what can and can't be recycled. These are being done before the truck comes around, so if you get an orange leaflet but your bin is still full, please leave it out until 5pm as the truck will still be coming to collect it.

Woohoo! The first chance for Carterton residents to meet their candidates has arrived! Wednesday is your chance to see what they’re all about before voting papers start arriving in your letterboxes on Friday. ... See MoreSee Less

Due to a numbering error on the recycling wheelie bins, all Carterton residents should put out their recycling wheelie bin and glass crates Monday 16 September.

Affected residents who have already received a letter from Earthcare will have their bins re-stickered before collection.

The alternating collection calendar will resume on Monday 23 September. We will repost the collection calendar and accurate collection zone map prior to the next collection.
