Holiday season refuse and recycling
Additional recycling centres are set up in selected areas of the Bay of Islands over the summer holiday season. These accept recycling at no charge. Prepaid Waste Management rubbish bags can also be left here. The on-going provision of these services depends on users respecting the facilities by ensuring they use the pre-paid bags for rubbish.
