Frequently asked questions

$5 up to what size?

$5 is for a standard car/van tyre – 4WD tyres are $6.

How does someone recycle a car seat? What is the cost?

Car seats can be taken to Fergy (Ferguson Street recycling centre) for $5 a pop. Car seats are recycled by SeatSmart – a social enterprise in Hawkes Bay. Car seats are dismantled and the different components are used for different things - see this poster for more info.

Will you take larger tyres, eg truck and tractor size? What is the cost?

Yes, these are $18 for a clean tyre and $20 for a dirty tyre. The reason we charge extra for dirty tyres is that they need to be cleaned before being sent away for shredding. A dirty tyre is one with excess soil or mud (a little bit is fine), stones, rocks, or plants.

Do they have to be derimmed?

Yes, we don’t accept tyres with rims.

Do you come and pick them up?

No, we don’t currently offer a collection service.
