Weed Bins

Community weed bins have been provided for the free disposal of invasive weeds close to the Waitākere Ranges, so we can prevent pest plants from spreading into the native bush we love.

The current season of community weed bins has come to an end, and bins are on hold while we await funding decisions. We’ll update this webpage as soon as more information about funding becomes available.

Thank you for supporting the weed bins and doing your part to keep pest plants at bay.

Weed bin locations

Bins were previously located at Piha and Huia, with pop-up bins also placed in Waiatarua, Laingholm, Glen Eden and Swanson.

Composting soft weeds

If you need to get rid of soft weeds such as Tradescantia, Plectranthus, or African Clubmoss, you can purchase a weed bag to compost them from the EcoMatters Store.
