Get Started

Get started at home

If you’ve just moved to town, one of the first things you’ll want to get sorted is your recycling. First check around the house for a black crate. If you can’t find one, then call Queenstown Lakes District Council on 443-0024. Their friendly staff will do the paperwork and order you a new one. The crate is free so long as it’s the first one for your household. If you’re renting, you’ll need to contact your landlord or rental agency and get them to make the call for you.

Then head on down to Wanaka Wastebusters recycling centre, corner of Ballantyne Rd and Riverbank Rd, to pick up your crate. Check out our great re-use shop while you’re there – it’s a great chance to meet some locals and find some treasure at the same time.

Get started at work

Over the years we’ve developed three main systems for Business Recycling. We can advise which system is best for the size and type of business you run. Options range from simple green recycling sacks through to colour coded wheelie bins and fadges (wool bags).

If you need a pick-up or want to start business recycling, give Bis a call on 443-8606 ext 5.

Accommodation: Triple Bin Package

Ideal for guests at motels and apartments. Package consists of three clearly labelled     wheelie bins: grey for glass, blue for plastic/ cans and red for paper/cardboard. Wanaka Wastebusters checks bins weekly or on request.

Special price: three bin pick-up for only $20.

Bars and Restaurants:  Hospitality Package

Designed to handle high volumes of recycling behind the scenes. Package consists of a combination of wheelie bins (usually for glass) and fadges to handle bulk cardboard packaging and plastic containers. Wanaka Wastebusters checks the recycling station up to three times a week if needed.

Price: $10 per fadge or wheelie bin pick-up.

Offices and Small Business: Office Package

Suits offices and small businesses who mostly recycle paper and cardboard, with some         mixed glass and plastics. We can provide you with clean green recycling sacks to deal         with moderate amounts of recycling. Wanaka Wastebusters checks the recycling station weekly or on request.

We can tweak any of these systems to find the unique combination of wheelie bins, fadges and green sacks that will best suit your business.
