What's happening

Fifty bins and 13 seats along Jackson St were replaced and three new bins installed near the bus stops in 2023.

The old bins and seats can be recycled and some may be refurbished for other parts of the city.

The design

The bin design is a pīngao, a distinctive plant found growing on frontal dunes all around New Zealand. The design is subtle, allowing the heritage architecture to remain the star of Jackson Street. The pīngao can be found on the Petone foreshore, so connects the Esplanade to the heart of Petone.

A silver-coloured rubbish bin. A raised roof provides protection to the bin with openings for putting in rubbish on all four sides. The side panels have a cut-out plant detail in the bottom left corner.A black park-bench style seat.
