Clutha District Council is the lead provider of waste management services and infrastructure within the Clutha District. We provide a kerbside rubbish & recycling collection service to residential properties in most urban areas of the district and to some commercial premises and rural households along service routes. We also operate the district's only sanitary landfill and ten waste transfer facilities throughout the district.
Council helps minimise the waste created and landfilled within our district by supporting the district's Enviroschools and providing information to encourage waste minimisation and responsible waste management practices. There are currently six Enviroschools in our District: Balclutha Primary, Catlins Area, Clinton Primary, Clutha Valley Primary, Taieri Beach and Waihola District Schools. For further information on Enviroschools see www.enviroschools.org.nz or contact Council on 0800 801 350 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
These webpages provide an overview of the waste management and minimisation services we provide. If you have any further enquires contact us on 0800 801 350 or email@example.com.
Second Hand Sundays
Do you have stuff you'd like to get rid of but it is too good to put in the rubbish? Would you like to give it away but don't know anyone who wants it?
Second-Hand Sundays are the perfect opportunity for that person to find your stuff and take it off your hands. In essence, it works like a garage sale, however no money changes hands.

Our Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP), adopted in June 2012, sets out how waste is to be managed and minimised within our district. The plan recognises that while the way we manage our waste has been moving in the right direction, there is still more we as a district can do. A Waste Assessment, produced as part of the WMMP planning process, outlines what we currently know about the waste created within the Clutha District.
