More than 200 businesses recycle with us, which is phenomenal for a small town like Wanaka. A decade ago there wasn’t any recycling at all in Wanaka. It’s been awesome to see the support we’ve had from the business community, and they are all proud to recycle.

Many of our small business owners make a living from tourism, and they’re pretty savvy. They know tourists want to see a clean, green New Zealand, and that they expect to see businesses recycling. Recycling is a very visible way of showing that we look after the beautiful landscape that we are lucky to live in.

The Wastebusters business team started from scratch and over the years we’ve learnt a lot about how to make business recycling easy and cost-effective for our customers. We’ve developed three main systems for business recycling. We work with our new customers to tailor one of those systems to suit their business perfectly.

Wanaka Wastebusters also has a well-deserved reputation for events recycling. Past events we’ve recycled at include Rippon, the Michael Hill NZ Golf Open and Warbirds Over Wanaka. Our team can pull it out of the bag every time because we have a low-tech system that depends on great staff. We’re flexible, low-key, experienced and very efficient.
