Timaru District Council (Zero Waste)

The Timaru District Council’s vision is for a sustainable community that reuses, recycles and recovers discarded resources and minimises residual waste to landfill, while ensuring protection of public health and the environment. The Council operates a three-bin kerbside collection service throughout urban and some rural areas of the Timaru District. Residents and businesses can drop-off compost, recycling and waste, as well as a range of other goods, to the four Council-owned transfer stations.
