Wheelie Bins

Econowaste offer a household wheelie bin service. Our wheelie bins are friendly on 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 material from landfill and use alternative recycling services.  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 (not available in Wellington & Porirua area)

  • 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
