You may have noticed the road works around our Queenstown office and library located on Gorge Road. Don’t worry, both are still open so pop in and see our friendly team! For information on the road works underway, please visit our Major Projects page.

The Frankton and Wānaka Transfer Station facilities will close every Sunday, starting 27 November until 8 January 2023, due to staff shortages. Both facilities will be open 8.00am-5.00pm Monday to Saturday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
