Our sites in Wanaka and Alexandra are open 9am to 5pm, seven days a week, for recycling and reuse.

The only days we close are Christmas Day, Easter Friday and the morning of Anzac Day.

If you are a first-time visitor, here’s how to find us.

In Wanaka, we have an after-hours recycling drop-off, next to the main gates on Ballantyne Rd. Holiday-makers leaving town find it useful to be able to recycle outside our normal operating hours.

Wastebusters is a social enterprise working for zero waste.
