Rubbish and recycling
We encourage zero waste.
You need to manage your own rubbish. No bags are issued with permits so you need to take your own.
You’re responsible for taking your rubbish away with you. The closest transfer station to sort your rubbish and recycling is Tokomaru Bay - see opening hours
Do not put rubbish bags on the roadside, this is illegal dumping.
