Thames Coromandel District Council’s seven Refuse Transfer Stations (RTS) are now open to the public with a reduced service due to the COVID-19 Alert Level 3 requirements to protect staff and customers.
Entry is restricted to one-in, one-out – so expect delays, please be patient, be mindful of other users and be kind to the staff.
TCDC is accepting:
General rubbish into the refuse pit
Blue Council rubbish bags
Bagged recyclables – to go into the refuse pit
Green waste – the green waste areas are open
Mixed glass – the glass recycling areas are open
By appointment only:
call ahead to your RTS if you wish to dispose of any hazardous materials (including light bulbs and batteries, which shouldn’t go into landfill), paint, gas bottles, steel, whiteware, BBQs and tyres.
RTS hours and locations: tcdc.govt.nz/rts
Payment is by account or Eftpos only – no cash can be accepted.
There are likely to be delays due to the Alert Level 3 procedures, so think about delaying your visit if you can – long queues are expected.
