COVID-19 Update: We're starting to offer services as detailed below. As our purpose states, we’re a tohu connecting people and place and we’ll continue to find new ways to do just that. There are many ways you can stay in touch with us, including signing up to our newsletter or following us on Facebook

Here’s the changes to our services:

Weed bins are starting to open again, check here for updates.

Events, workshops and other in-person meetings are still currently taking place online. Find our EcoFest West online resources and information here

Our EcoMatters Store is open again for our usual hours with safety precautions in place.

Volunteers and interns: We're still working through how to re-open our volunteer sessions safely for everyone. So please stay tuned to future newsletters and join our Volunteers Facebook group to receive further updates on this.

Homes: Water Checks are available via phone or zoom/skype. Get in touch here. You can also find tips and advice for saving water here

Nature: All volunteer sessions are suspended but you can find plenty of advice and resources here on our website if you’ll be weeding at home or finding other ways to stay connected with nature.

BikesOur Glen Innes and New Lynn hubs re-open from 10am on Friday 15 May, and Henderson re-opens from 10am on Saturday 16 May, with normal opening hours resuming after that.

We'll be offering advice and support for fixing bikes, as well as selling bikes and parts, but we won't be offering bike loans or novelty bikes yet. Visitors will be asked to sign in and follow physical distancing protocols. You can join our Bike Hubs Facebook group here.

Waste: Recycling and e-waste drop-offs can be done in the store at usual opening hours. Our zero waste event equipment can now be hired. Wesley Market is closed until further notice. To improve your home composting skills, find online resources at the Compost Collective website. Auckland Council’s kerbside rubbish and recycling collections continue as normal, check details here.
