Hi there

 

I have an old suitcase with a broken handle so I can't really take it to a charity shop. Non-organic collection has only just happened so I can't wait for that. Is there anywhere I can dispose of it for free (and legally)? I am in Onehunga, Auckland.

I'm from the UK and there you would just take it to your local 'council dump' - is there anywhere similar in New Zealand?

Cut it up




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

1eStar: Pikes point transfer station. Captain Springs Road.


Not free, IME really expensive compared to the one out west.

I agree with the cut it up suggestion. Then just normal household waste. Shouldnt take too much space if you make it into quarters and stick it in the bins corner.

Non-organic collection tourism?

Find out where the collection is at the moment, drive over and just unload. On busy roads, I would guess that 10-20% of rubbish left out for those collections is from out-of-suburb dumpster tourists.

Leave it out on the berm outside your own place and hope. That seems to be happening more and more today.

Nice result - next door neighbor is having his kitchen done and let me put it in with their building rubbish :-)

I went to the one in Captain Springs Road a while ago and they tried to charge loads for something small ($25 for an old Xmas tree or something?) - maybe they have a flat rate which makes big loads better value than small things.

When we were doing our building reno a couple of years back, we took all the rubbish by trailer load to Pikes Point. Best value was to take a trailer load in excess of 400kg as they charge 15ยข per kg. Trailer minimum $60.
