NPDC offers free drop-off for storm-damage green waste

NPDC is inviting people with storm-related green waste on their property to register to drop it off for free at one of the district’s rubbish and recycling transfer stations.

Registrations open today, Wednesday, through or by calling NPDC on 06-759 6060, and close 4pm this Friday. The free drop-offs are available from Thursday 16 February to Sunday 19 February.

“We know the high winds fuelled by Cyclone Gabrielle caused a lot of damage to properties, trees and gardens, so we want to help people get their lives back to normal as soon as possible” says NPDC Resource Recovery Manager Kimberley Hope.

“However due to the high levels of storm-related green waste expected and to help manage traffic, people will need to register to get a free drop-off first, at least one day before you intend to drop it off.”

Drop-offs at our New Plymouth, Waitara, Ōkato, Inglewood and Tongaporutu transfer stations are during each site’s normal operating hours, which can be found on the Zero Waste section of the website.  Transfer stations (
