Heavy Rain Watch - What you need to know

Metservice NZ has issued a Heavy Rain Watch for the Waikato region, in place from 2am–3pm, Wednesday 1 February.

Given the large amount of rainfall that our district has experienced over the past few days, we are urging residents to continue to take care and stay aware of the conditions in their area. Further rainfall could quickly exacerbate existing slips, river levels and produce further flooding quite quickly.

WDC Notices

1 Aug 2017


Waitomo District Council is in the process of collecting old green bins and delivering a new green bin to properties that currently receive the Kerbside Collection Service.

Please place your old green bin on the kerbside by 8am on the day of collection as per normal, regardless of whether there are recycling items in the bin or not.

  • Tuesday 1 August - Mokau / Piopio 
  • Friday 4 August - Eastern side of Te Kuiti (Rora St side of railway line)  
  • Tuesday 8 August - Waitomo ward. 

We are doing this because the old bins have been in circulation for seven years now and some are in bad condition, while some properties do not have a bin at all.

WDC’s Kerbside Collection Services allows for the weekly collection of one green bin per property.

Only the new green bin will be accepted as part of the service. Please mark your property’s address on the new bin.

If you would like to speak with us about the Kerbside Collection Service please phone 0800 932 4357.
