Pines Resource Recovery Park

The Pines Resource Recovery Park is Selwyn's waste handling facility. Located near Rolleston, the facility accepts a range of recyclable materials, household hazardous waste, cleanfill, food and garden waste for composting, as well as general waste for items that are currently unable to be recycled. Selwyn district does not have its own landfill so all residual waste is sent to the Kate Valley Regional Landfill in the Hurunui district.
