The only days we close are Christmas Day, Easter Friday and Anzac Day morning.
There is an after-hours recycling drop-off, next to the main gates on Ballantyne Rd, so you can recycle when we are closed.
You’ll find us on the corner of Ballantyne Rd and Riverbank Rd.
All the profits from our community enterprise are put back into providing more services like the after-hours drop-off for our community. Wanaka Wastebusters was started in 2000 by volunteers to recycle and reduce waste.
Transfer Station and Green Waste
We don’t run the Green Waste or the Transfer Station, but we are often asked about their opening hours:
- Wanaka Green Waste run by Ecco Landscapes
10am – 3pm Monday – Sunday
- Wanaka Transfer Station run by All-Waste
11:30am – 3:30pm, seven days
