Following a recycling trial carried out earlier this year, a decision was made to no longer collect lithium-ion batteries or liquid paperboard cartons at our Horowhenua District Council Civic Building. Please dispose of these items as follows:
We are however still continuing to collect lightbulbs, compact fluorescent lights and bread tags.
There is a free CFL collection box in Horowhenua District Council's Civic Building, and one at the Foxton Transfer Station.
Fluorescent lamps contain mercury, a highly toxic waste, which if disposed of irresponsibly can pollute waterways and damage the environment. Council has sponsored a collection by Interwaste, the only company in New Zealand offering a zero-to-landfill 100% recycling service for all forms of mercury lamps.
Monday to Friday (except Wednesdays): 9am to 5pm
Wednesday: 9.30am to 5pm
Closed: Weekends and Public Holidays.
Council can be contacted 24 hours a day 7 days a week by phone.

Collect your plastic bread tags and drop them off at Horowhenua District Council's Civic Building or Te Whare Mahana Community Hub.
The bread tags are sold to a plastics company in South Africa which makes seedlings trays, and the funds are used to purchase wheelchairs for those in need.
