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.
War on Weeds
During the month of March, more weed bins are available across the Waitākere Ranges and Henderson-Massey Local Board areas. For more information, check out War on Weeds
Thanks to the Waitākere Ranges Local Board for funding this service.
