Hazmobile rolls into Orakei next Saturday to collect hazardous waste

The free Hazmobile service will be collecting household hazardous waste in Reihana Street’s public car park (near the rugby fields) in Orakei from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 2 April. Auckland City’s resource recovery manager, Warwick Jaine says this is a timely opportunity for people to dispose of hazardous household waste that cannot be put out in the inorganic rubbish collection.

“Next Saturday’s Hazmobile collection gives people a chance to have a really good clear out of unwanted hazardous rubbish,” he says. “With the inorganic rubbish collection currently in progress across the city, people may have material they want to throw out which, although not suitable for inorganic, can be disposed of safely at the Hazmobile collection.”

Up to 20kg or 20L of items per household can be dropped off at no charge.

The Hazmobile collects most household hazardous waste including: paints, solvents and paint strippers wood preservatives glues and resins all types of garden chemicals, including pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers petrol, oil and diesel car care products all types of cleaners, including toilet and drain cleaners, oven cleaners, bleaches and disinfectants pool chemicals furniture and shoe polish all types of batteries, from car and boat batteries to household and rechargeable batteries gas cylinders mobile phones.

Items not accepted include asbestos, ammunition and explosives, medical and hazardous commercial waste.

The collection service is provided by councils in the Auckland region. Auckland City’s next collection is on 7 May in Western Springs.
