Refuse Transfer Station skip bins available every Thursday from 23 April
From the 23 April, the skip bins inside the gates of the Paeroa and Waihi refuse transfer stations will be available every Thursday from 12:30pm – 4pm, instead of fortnightly, for bagged waste, including recycling. If you can't fit all your yellow council bags into your wheelie bin, drop them off at the refuse transfer station during these times.
Due to Monday 27 April being a public holiday, both Transfer stations' skip bins will be available on Thursday 30 April and Friday 1 May from 12:30-4pm.
Waihi bottle bank on restricted hours
The bottle bank outside the Paeroa refuse station is still available daily but due to a large amount of glass and bags being dumped on the ground beside the bottle bank at the Waihi Transfer Station, the bottle bank has been moved inside the gates and will now be available on Thursdays from 12.30 to 4pm only (as well as Friday 1 May due to Anzac Day public holiday on Monday 27)
