Cost increase to official refuse bag
28 Jun 2023, 9:17 AM
Due to the increasing costs to cover the operation of our waste and landfill services and the increasing charges imposed by Central Government, the cost of purchasing an official blue refuse bag will increase to $4.80 on 1 July.
This may seem like a lot to pay but many factors determine this price including the cost of the bag, distribution, landfill operational costs, Central Government charges and Resource Consents and monitoring.
We encourage you to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible as this will help reduce the need to use and fill a blue bag as often.
