Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

WDC Notices

3 Aug 2017, 9:37 AM


We are in the process of collecting old green bins and delivering a new green bin to properties that currently receive the Kerbside Collection Service. We will first collect the recycling (as per normal), then collect the old bins, and finally deliver a new green bin. This process will take place throughout the day of delivery. Please place your old green bin on the kerbside by 8am on the day of collection, regardless of whether there are recycling items in the bin or not. 

  • 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. 

The green bins are provided by WDC for the Kerbside Recycling Collection Service. WDC is replacing the old bin and all old bins will be withdrawn. Only the new green bin can be used as part of this 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.
