M.T.Drums is a local waste management business operating in Hokitika on the West Coast, as well as currently operating in the Greymouth area. Our main driver (Dave) has been with the company through three previous owners of the business as well as now working for ourselves and he has collecting rubbish in our wheelie bins around the farming areas of Kokatahi and Kowhitirangi, as well as those customers in town who require an extra bin for their rubbish needs clocking up over 20 years of driving the rubbish to its final resting place at the local transfer station. We also have a driver (Doug) for our street bin contract with the local council who empties the towns’ street bins in the wee hours of the morning come rain, hail or shine! A job well done nevertheless.
When we purchased the business in 2016 it was only operating with 240ltr wheelie bins – we have now expanded into the commercial area of both Hokitika and Greymouth offering our customers bigger bins on wheelies (660 ltr and 1100 ltr with lids) for all their commercial rubbish, cardboard and plastic wrapping. We now also operate a skip bin service with our standard skip bin size being 7.5 cubic meters but do have smaller 3 cubic meter bins – most people find the 7.5 cubic meter skip to be the most practical when clearing out their rubbish as it is far easier to throw the stuff into this size skip. We operate our general rubbish collection service in Hokitika Monday to Thursday – our general rubbish collection service in Greymouth on a Wednesday. Skip bins are by arrangement and we offer this service 7 days a week.
