Henderson Road Transfer Station is changing

Why we need to improve the site?

In 2020, Henderson Road Refuse Transfer Station (HTS) sent almost 11,000 tonnes of waste to the Ōmarunui landfill. 50% of waste dropped off at HTS would be recyclable, compostable, or reusable – for example food waste, recyclable plastics, scrap metal, clothing, cleanfill, and reusable or repairable second-hand goods. To help reduce the excessive amount of waste filling up our landfill, we need to work together with the community to improve the facility and save resources from being lost forever.

What is the plan?

We want to convert the site from a refuse transfer station into a resource recovery centre. The project will go through various stages from early 2022 until 2023. It will be funded by the national waste levy, not rates payers’ money.

What we want to achieve?

  • offer multiple new drop-off areas to help you separate your items
  • increase the range of items accepted for drop off
  • redesign the second-hand shop to make it more user-friendly
  • set up educational facilities & tool library
  • improve traffic management
  • offer more flexible opening hours
