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 place to drop off your pre-loved goods for resale in the Trash Palace shop. Trash Palace is located at the end of Broken Hill Road, inside the Spicer Landfill gates.
Monday to Saturday – 8.30 am – 5 pm
Sunday and Public Holidays – 9.00 am – 5 pm

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.
