We collect recycling from households across Kaikoura District. We collect most recyclable material on the kerbside, but there are some exceptions. For details have a look at the information below. Please note though, that we don't offer a rubbish collection either in Kaikoura township or the rural areas of the district. If you have waste to dispose of you'll need to bring it to the Resource Recovery Centre yourself, or arrange a rubbish collection with a waste contractor
