It was to be Easter Monday but the landfill had not dried out enough for a predicted high number of vehicles going there and would make conditions very challenging.
You will still be able to take general rubbish and greenwaste to the landfill on Thursday and you won't be charged for it. This follows the very successful half-price sale we had over four days in March and is something we can do for the community before the landfill closes permanently (the last operating day is Friday 21 April).
While there won’t be a charge for rubbish on Thursday, we’d appreciate people making a gold coin donation which will go to the Waitaki Resource Recovery Trust.
The new refuse transfer station, being operated by Waste Management Ltd and replacing the Oamaru landfill, will open Saturday 22 April.
