Rubbish Collection & Transfer Station
Wheelie Bin Service
The Gore District Council has a kerbside wheelie bin collection service for households and businesses, in Gore and Mataura.
The red lidded bin is for household waste, plastic, paper, steel cans, sanitary waste, food waste etc.
The yellow lidded bin is for glass only.
It is free to dispose of a small trailer of greenwaste at the Gore and Mataura transfer stations.
There is cardboard and aluminium recycling bins at the Gore Transfer Station and behind the Mataura community centre, McQueen Avenue. Cardboard can also be left at the Pakeke Lions North Gore depot.
If you would like to request a bin or report a lost/found bin, you can do so through our Do It Online portal.
Red lidded bin will be collected weekly, for three consecutive weeks. The yellow lidded bin will be collected every fourth week.
