Rubbish & Recycling
In a growing district like Waimakariri, it is important that waste is managed so that we can reduce the amount of rubbish that is sent to landfill.
The Council provides a number of waste services for the district's residents, businesses, schools and visitors:
- A weekly kerbside refuse bag and fortnightly recycling wheelie bin collection service is provided to approximately 75% of the district’s households.
- Waste disposal, diversion and recycling services are available at our transfer stations - Southbrook operates seven days a week, and Oxford is open two days each week.
- Operation of a cleanfill disposal site - access to this site is limited to companies registered with the Council to ensure only compliant cleanfill is deposited here.
