Rubbish & Recycling

COVID-19 Alert Level 3 update: The Feilding Transfer Station will be open as per their normal operating hours at alert Level 3, starting from Wednesday 1 September.  These facilities will be adhering to strict rules around physical distancing and signing in. You must follow the instructions of the operators on site when entering these premises.  They will be accepting Eftpos only. If you have any concerns – please contact us on 06 323 000. 

We are currently unable to process non-glass recycling but we are working on alternative options and we will advise as more information becomes available.

Glass recycling will be processed as normal.

Thank you for your assistance over the past few weeks while we have been at Level 4.


The Manawatu District Council is dedicated to reducing waste and keeping our community clean. Together with the Waste Management Minimisation Plan (2MB pdf), we aspire to reach zero waste through education, development and implementation of recycling, reuse and recovery methods.

As a Council we run a weekly kerbside rubbish collection and an alternating fortnightly recycling collection service in the District. Council blue rubbish bags are for sale at supermarkets and stores located throughout the Manawatu District, as well as at the front counter of the Council building in Feilding. To ensure that your rubbish and recycling are collected, please make sure it is kerbside by 7:30am on your collection day.

For more information, have a read of our handy Rubbish & Recycling Guide (561KB pdf). The tips in this guide will help you reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill. It will help with what you can recycle and when, and the services we provide for effective waste management in the community. It’s much easier than you might have thought!
