Rubbish collection

​​​​​​​​​​COVID-19 Update 13 May 2020: ​

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.

Kerbside rubbish collection providers

The following businesses will pick up your rubbish from outside your property. You will need to check with them to confirm which areas they service, their pickup days and where you should leave your rubbish.

Many of these providers also offer recycling and greenwaste collection services.

This is the most up-to-date information made available to Council from these businesses. We cannot guarantee its accuracy and recommend you contact them directly to confirm details.
