As an essential service, under Level 3 opening hours for our Lawrie Road and the Rustybrook Road sites are the same as normal however, we can only accept rubbish and greenwaste - no recylcing, no reuse goods and both our shops will be closed. Apologies for any inconvenience.
The following Level 3 health and safety restrictions must be followed:
physical distancing of 2 metres
masks or face coverings required. Note: disposable masks, gloves or any other PPE must be disposed of as rubbish and CANNOT go in recycling.
contactless payment only (no cash)
customers must unload their own loads
Mahurangi Wastebusters is focused on reducing, repairing, reusing and recycling as much as possible for the benefit of our people and our environment.
We provide rubbish and green waste disposal for residential and small business customers. We also accept scrap metal and recyclables that can be re-manufactured or re-purposed sustainably, and we have small shops at both locations where you can buy pre-loved goods at bargain prices.
We offer zero waste education and support waste minimisation activities across the region.
Hazardous waste, clean or hard fill and vehicles over four tonnes are not permitted.
Our plan is to help the community achieve the following landfill diversion targets:
50% in 2020
65% in 2021
rising to 70% by 2022
We will be tracking and reporting our progress using a proven product tracker tool that will measure the flow of waste material through our sites.
In September 2019 after just three months of operation, we passed our first annual target. By the end of our first financial year, we had diverted the equivalent of 377, 20-foot shipping containers of waste from landfill.
About the waste transfer stations
The Snells Beach and Wellsford waste transfer stations are both on top of closed landfills, and Auckland Council is doing some vital work to make sure they don't cause any environmental harm. For this reason, we can only accept waste from residential and and small business customers. We cannot accept hazardous waste, clean or hard fill and vehicles over four tonnes are not permitted.
We LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU Soon!
