Waitaki Resource Recovery Park

About Us

The Waitaki Resource Recovery Park is a Community-owned enterprise run by the Waitaki Resource Recovery Trust established in 2003 with the intention to ‘optimise the amount of material diverted from landfill to beneficial uses through Community ownership of our resource streams’.

We accept a full range of recyclable and resaleable items which are available for purchase in our ‘Get Sorted’ shop.

We also accept domestic greenwaste which is converted to mulch and available for purchase at the Park.

Materials which are unable to be reused or recycled are accepted at the Park and disposed of at the Oamaru Landfill.

Last year 84% of all material entering the Resource Recovery Park was diverted from landfill.

The Waitaki Resource Recovery Trust is primarily self-funded with supportive funding from the Waitaki District Council. Read their Rubbish, Recycling & Greenwaste (4MB) information booklet which outlines options for managing your waste in the Waitaki.
