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.

Waitomo District Waste Transfer Station Services under COVID restrictions

Waitomo District Waste Transfer Station Services

Waitomo District Council provides Waste Transfer Stations for the disposal of refuse and recycling, in the communities of Maniaiti/ Benneydale, Piopio, Marokopa, Kinohaku, Mokau/Awakino and Te Kuiti.

Since the implementation of the nationwide COVID-19 restrictions last year, our waste transfer stations hours have been reviewed and amended over time.

While we are still working under the relevant, mandated criteria, our current opening days and times will continue for the time being. They will be reviewed and adjusted to keep in line with any changes to the COVID Alert Level and staff availability.
