Based on the most recent MetService update regarding Cyclone Gabrielle, and the strong wind and rain warnings expected to significantly impact our region, kerbside rubbish, recycling and food scrap collections have been cancelled for Monday and Tuesday.

Please securely hold on to your rubbish, recycling and food scraps until your next scheduled collection. Once collections resume, the normal cycle of collection will apply. This means that residents will have to wait until next week for their usual rubbish collection, and some residents another two weeks for their recycling collection.

Based on current weather reports we intend to resume kerbside services on Wednesday 15 February.

We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time, the safety of residents, staff and contractors is of absolute importance through the course of this weather event.

We ask that residents bring their bins/bags back onto their property and secure them, along with any rubbish that could be caught by high winds and become a hazard or cause damage.

If your collection was cancelled and your rubbish is unsafe to store, you can take it to one of the 15 participating transfer stations or resource recovery centres free of charge when it is safe, the storm has passed and services resume.
