New Recycling and Rubbish Service

Gore District Council is changing the way it collects our recycling and rubbish. From 2 July 2012, recycling will be collected every fortnight and rubbish will be collected every alternative fortnight using wheelie bins.

If you live in Gore or Mataura township, you will recieve two new wheelie bins in June 2012.   Full details of this service, including details of the improved recycling service for all residents, will be finalised in the coming months.
