Wheelie Bins

Econowaste offers a household wheelie bin service. Our red wheelie bins are friendly to the environment, mobile, clean, tidy and animal proof!

Econowaste discourages the use of refuse wheelie bins for green waste and household recyclables.  Please help us divert these materials from landfill and use alternative recycling services. Auckland Council Bylaws also restrict the placement of recoverable material in refuse bins in some areas.

Wheelie bins come in three sizes:

  • 80 Litre (small) – suitable for a 1-2 person household. Fits approximately: 1.3 x 60L rubbish bags 

  • 120 Litre (medium) – suitable for a 2-3 person household. Fits approximately: 2 x 60L rubbish bags

  • 240 Litre (large) – suitable for a 3 or more person household. Fits approximately: 4 x 60L rubbish bags
