Community Weed Bin available now at the Parua Bay Community Centre!
Bring in your invasive weeds and we will dispose of them free of charge
The bin is located in the top carpark of the Parua Bay Community Centre. It is a bit of a pilot project, but we hope to be able to keep it there for a month, depending on whether people respect its purpose.
So get weeding and bring in your invasive weeds – this includes weeds like moth plant, wild ginger, elaeagnus, woolly night shade, tradescantia, climbing asparagus, jasmine, blue mo
rning glory and tree privet and chinese privet. If you are not sure you can always give us a call on 022 056 2277.
PLease help us to continue to provide this service by NOT dumping:
- Regular garden waste and lawn clippings
- Bamboo, palm trees and flax
- Native plants
- Tree trunks and large branches
- Rubbish and inorganic items
- Weeds removed from around kauri trees, because of the risk of spreading kauri dieback disease.
Don’t forget when you are doing your weeding to remove by the roots, or to use some herbicide to stop cut weeds growing back. Saves work and weeds in the long run. Free advice and herbicide available to help with this too – just ask!
