Recycling (green waste and recycling crates)

Green waste


Northland Waste provides garden waste bins to Warkworth, some surrounding areas and Kerikeri. Our garden waste bins are a 240L bin which is collected kerbside on the last Friday of each month. The garden waste that you place in these bins is transported to our local transfer station where it is mulched and used as compost or topsoil for soil rehabilitation and sediment control. The items that you can place in our green waste bins are specified below:


  • Leaves
  • Grass clippings
  • Weeds
  • Flowers
  • Small branches (up to 75mm in diameter and 750mm long)


  • Flax
  • Bamboo
  • Palm
  • Cabbage trees
  • Soil
  • Plant pots
  • Food scraps
  • Domestic or hazardous waste

By choosing to divert your green waste from landfill you are helping to preserve the landscape and environment that we all enjoy. As a forward thinking company Northland Waste prides itself on offering alternative waste management solutions to minimise waste production.

Our areas of service can be confirmed by simply clicking on "order here" below or entering your address in the designated box on our Home page.

Collection days may vary on or around a public holiday. Your green waste bin will be provided with a calendar on the lid and you will be emailed an electronic calendar with collection dates for your reference.

Worm Farm

Worm Bin Detail7By choosing to divert your oranic waste from landfill you are again helping to preserve the landscape and environment that we all enjoy. We are pleased to offer the Hungry Bin Worm farms as a great alternative to landfill.

Hungry bin is one of the most efficient ways to compost, and definitely one of the easiest compost systems to use. Because hungry bin does not smell or attract vermin, you can keep it in a convenient location where it suits you.

The unique design of the Hungry Bin creates an ideal living environment for compost worms. The worms convert organic waste into worm castings and a nutrient-rich liquid, both high-quality fertilisers. The liquid drains freely from the bin and into a tray placed below it. The tapered shape of the bin compresses the castings, encouraging the worms to move to the surface layer to access fresh food. Compressed castings are easier to handle and largely free of worms.

Worms not included.
