Waitaki Resource Recovery Park

The Waitaki Resource Recovery Park (WRRP) has been proudly supporting Oamaru in responsible waste management since 2003.

Where rubbish becomes resource!

We accept a full range of recycling and resale items as well as green waste. Resaleable items are available for purchase in the Get Sorted Shop. The green waste collected is converted to Environmental Enhancer Mulch which is for sale at the Park.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Park and thank you for your support!
