Kerbside recycling collection will be a day later from Christmas Day. If your normal collection day is Wednesday 25 December then your collection will be Thursday 26 December. That carries on each day through to Saturday.
The same changes will apply for New Year’s Day week. Monday and Tuesday collections will be as normal in both weeks.
Please put glass in the blue crate, put paper, plastic, cardboard and cans in the yellow-top.
Christmas Day falls on a Wednesday in 2019 and some collections will be one day later.
Please place your recycling bins and bags on the roadside in a location where our drivers can see them clearly. If you leave the area prior to collection day or have an excess, you can drop your official rubbish bags and recycling at any Resource Recovery Centre free of charge.
Make sure you do not overfill your recycling bin or glass crate, or it will not be collected.
If you need a second crate for glass, you can buy one from any council office or RRC for $20.
Collections take place every day except for Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Good Friday.
