A rural rubbish collection is provided along a specific route through the district every week.
Please download the rural collection map to see the collection route.
Not all rural residents have a kerbside rubbish collection from their front gate. Only those on the collection route, and then only when it is safe for the collection vehicle to stop and collect.
Residents living on properties outside the route can drop off their rubbish in Council's blue rubbish bags before 7:30am at these points on the specified days for collection.
Council ‘blue’ rubbish bags are for sale at supermarkets in Feilding and Palmerston North as well as stores located throughout the Manawatu District. They are also available at Council office.
There is one Rural Transfer Station in the Manawatu District:
Southern Transfer Station: Kaimatarau Road, Rongotea
