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 small business customers.
We cannot accept hazardous waste, clean or hard fill and vehicles over four tonnes are not permitted.
Both recycling centres, accept rubbish, green waste and a wide range of materials and recyclables that can be re-manufactured or re-purposed sustainably.
Recyclables we currently accept:
cardboard and paper
glass bottles and jars (please sort by colour)
tin and aluminium cans (food grade)
single use plastic containers (1 & 2) from the kitchen, laundry and bathroom
metal and whiteware appliances
car and truck batteries
fluorescent tubes and bulbs
We do NOT accept:
any asbestos containing materials or other hazardous waste
clean fill or hard fill
fibre cement board
Vehicles over four tonnes are not permitted.
If you are unsure about an item(s) you want to dispose of, please email or call us on 09 945 3980 with a description before coming to site so we can advise you.
Our prices are based on volume, not weight. Prices are the same at both sites. Please sort your loads by product type and compact well to get the best value for money.
