Our refuse transfer stations are now closed

Our refuse transfer stations are now closed but they will still offer some services for our rural communities and those without kerbside collections.

A bin for bagged rubbish and recycling (except glass) will be available outside each transfer station from 12.30 to 4pm on the kerbside collection day for that town.

In Paeroa that’s once a fortnight starting Thursday 2 April. In Waihi that’s once a fortnight starting Thursday 9 April

If anyone in your household is sick, please double bag your rubbish and recycling, but only the outside bag needs to be an official bag

A bottle bank will be available permanently outside the gate at each transfer station for glass disposal.

Thank you for your understanding and patience in these challenging times

How you can help

Try to minimise your rubbish at home

Only use your bins and the drop off sites for your day-to-day household rubbish. Now isn't the time to be cleaning out the
cupboards and the garage

Pick up your own rubbish if it spills in the street - because our contractors won't be able to touch it

Be understanding if there are delays due to unforeseen circumstances like breakdowns, bad weather, or high demand

Please understand that the collectors and staff are still out there working and handling your waste - be kind, understanding and remember they have families to go home to as well
