Site improvements

coneDiggers and earth-moving equipment have started work to make the transfer station/green-waste/recycling area work better. There will be improvements at our recycling centre, including a change to one-way traffic and a new gate to exit by. It will take a while to get sorted, but hopefully the end result will be worth it!! Please drive slowly and be alert for changes to parking, roads and signs. Our staff will do their best to make it easy for you.

Get sorted this winter

CaptureThe Wanaka Wastebusters ultimate op-shop and recycling centre is open 9am-5pm, every day. You’ll find everything you need at Wastebusters’ ultimate op-shop, from duvets and heaters to cutlery and clothes.

You can find the little shop that doesn’t cost the earth on the corner of Riverbank Rd and Ballantyne Rd. The fire is on and it’s warm and cosy. Number One, the Wastebusters cat, might even give you a snuggle if you’re lucky.

Hot builders recycle

                                                                                             Hope our new construction recycling ad makes you giggle – thanks to Bex and to Clint from CBG Quality Construction for modelling for us. Clint is one of our original recyclers from the building industry – he’s been recycling onsite for more than seven years. If you’re building a house, ask your builder to set up onsite recycling…It’s easy, and we can help.

No more TV recycling

Matt (800x600)We are no longer accepting CRT TVs or CRT monitors at our RCN e-Cycle depots in Wanaka or Queenstown. Recycling them is just too expensive to make a user-pays collection viable. In Australia, the manufacturers and importers cover the recycling cost. We support that happening  here!

You can still recycle all other e-waste with us: computer towers, laptops, cables, LCD monitors, cellphones, cables, printers. Read more on our web page or press release.
