Rubbish and recycling

In Plimmerton we currently have weekly collection of rubbish and re-cycling on Fridays. Both must be out for collection by 8am.


Rubbish must be in an official black plastic Porirua City Council (PCC) rubbish bag. Rubbish bags and replacement recycling crates can be purchased from the Porirua City Council building located in Cobham Court, Porirua, or bags can also be bought from local supermarkets or dairies.

Trash Palace is the recycling centre in Porirua where you can drop off and buy second hand household goods and learn about sustainable living in one of the recycling education programmes or community projects at the Trash Palace Education Centre.

Wheelie bins are also collected weekly and are available from private organisations. PCC does not provide a wheelie bin service.

Look up Rubbish Bin Hire in the yellow pages for several companies that hire out a variety of wheelie bins and skip bins. You can also try Bookabin Online Skip Bin Hire

Check out PCC’s website for details on what you can recycle, how to present these items for collection and rules about what can and cannot go into rubbish bags and recycling.
