Buller District Council

Kerbside waste collection and transfer stations operation alert level 4

18th August, 2021

Kerbside refuse and recycling collection services will continue as usual in Buller District during alert level 4 in waste collection zone 1.

The Westport and Reefton Transfer Stations will be closed during alert level 4. The material recovery facility in Karamea will also be closed.

As a result residents living in waste collection zone 2 and zone 3 are asked to retain their recycling materials including glass, if possible, until we return to alert level 1 or 2.

Smart Environmental will contact essential services to arrange refuse collection services for people in waste collection zone 2 and 3.

To check what zone you are living in, go to our recycling and refuse page.

Further information will be released once updates are provided by central government.
