Rubbish collection

Council does not provide a rubbish collection service in Waitaki and therefore does not charge rates for this. Kerbside collection services are provided by private contractors.

You can choose a collection service that suits you best and pay for what you use. This means if you produce less waste, you pay less. We think this is a fairer way than everyone paying the same rate.
