Rubbish and Recycling

Council doesn't provide a kerbside rubbish or recycling collection service in Waitaki, which is why we don't charge rates for these services. Kerbside rubbish and recycling collection is instead provided by private contractors.

There are several private contractors operating in the district who offer a range of kerbside collection services - including rubbish, recycling and greenwaste collection. You pay them directly for the services you need and this means the less you waste, the less you pay.

If you don't want kerbside collection, there are several Council and community-run drop-off services available. Locations, opening hours and charges for these services are included in the drop-off services information.
