Honiara City Council collects waste from Residential, Commercial houses, Council Schools and Clinics in Honiara. This is done through both Council staff and outsourced private companies.
Residential collection is done by two different collectors, Council staff and private contractors who signed a Refuse Contractual Agreement with council for waste collection.
Council collectors and contractors are collecting residential waste in ten zones. Six zones are collected by council collectors and four zones are collected by waste contractors. Council collectors are using three compactor vehicles and waste contractors are using 3 ton trucks for waste collection.
Contractors collect waste three days in a week and should collect waste from each residence once a week.
Each residence must have a rubbish bin outside their home to have their rubbish collected. You can get a bin from the Council.
Council waste collectors also collects waste from business houses after the owners have signed the Trade Refuse Agreement with Council. The collection depends on how many days owners have paid for in the Agreement.
Owners of food establishments such as Kai bars, restaurants and cafeterias paid for more collection days as they generate more organic waste that gives out bad odor and have to be collected regularly
