Weed Bins

If you live in the Waitākere Ranges Local Board area, you can dispose of invasive weeds free of charge at the community weed bins and help prevent pest plants from spreading into the native bush we love.

Covid-19 update

Update 14 October 2021: Community weed bins are coming back. To keep each other safe, please follow these guidelines:

  • One vehicle at a time at a bin
  • Scan in
  • Wear a face covering
  • Keep a 2m distance from others

Invasive weeds accepted

Please respect these bins – they’re here for invasive weeds only. When illegal dumping happens, we have to pay for rubbish to be removed. That makes this service more expensive and less viable for everyone.

We do not accept bamboo, large branches or tree trunks, nīkau/palm trees or fronds, cabbage trees, general garden waste and weeds from around kauri trees (to prevent the spread of kauri dieback disease).

Kia ora and thanks
