Marlborough sends up to 50,000 tonnes of refuse to landfill each year.

Marlborough District Council provides a weekly kerbside refuse collection service in Blenheim and Picton, and operates waste transfer stations at several locations throughout Marlborough.

Waste collected by kerbside collection and at the transfer stations is transported to the Bluegums Regional Landfill south of Blenheim on Taylor Pass Road.

A number of materials and chemicals are classified as hazardous waste and their disposal to landfill should be avoided. Examples of hazardous wastes are; asbestos, PCBs (in old capacitors), re-chargeable batteries, pesticides, solvents and used oil.

Domestic quantities of these wastes are accepted free of charge at any of Marlborough's transfer stations.
