Make the most of waste by the Auckland Council

Waiheke Community Resource Recovery Park

All you need to know

It’s time for us to rethink waste.

The opening of the Community Resource Recovery Park (RRP) marks a milestone in the growth of Auckland Council’s Resource Recovery Network, which is currently made up of eight Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) spread across the region. Waiheke’s Community RRP operates from the previous Waiheke Transfer Station site at 108-110 Ostend Road. The Waiheke Zero Waste Partnership – made up of the local Waiheke branch of AIM Services and local community organisations, Island Waste Collective (IWC) and Clean Island (CI) – is running the new operation in collaboration with Auckland Council.

The Community RRP is located at the Waiheke Island Transfer Station site, 108-110 Ostend Road. It will help us all to reuse, repurpose, upcycle, and recycle our unwanted items – to turn waste into a resource and keep it out of the landfill. Keeping it local and building a sustainable future – by Waiheke, for Waiheke.

Opening Hours

  • 8am-4pm, seven days a week
  • Ph (09) 890 4001
  • 12pm middday to 4pm, ANZAC Day (25 April)
  • Closed on Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Good Friday.

Prices for waste at the CRRP are lower than elsewhere in the region. There is no charge to drop off recycling or reusable items.

From Monday 2 November 2020, new gate fees will apply at the Waiheke Community Resource Recovery Park. Auckland Council will still be partially subsidising waste disposal through regional rates, as these new fees are still lower than the rest of the region. Visit the CRRP webpage for pricing information or download a flyer. 

Customers entering at Ostend Road will notice that the layout of the site has changed. Drop-off points for specific waste types may be different. Our friendly, local staff will be there to guide you to where you need to go.

The Community RRP is a ‘work in progress’. A second site at 4-6 Tahi Road has been secured to provide additional space for resource recovery activities at the Community RRP. The site will be developed gradually, and new services will be rolled out in due course.
