Hi, 

Do you know your rubbish/greenwaste/recycling dates for the Christmas and New Year Period?


Christchurch City (below link) - Bascially if your collection date falls on the public holiday then you have to either put your bins out the Saturday after (or in some cases the Saturday prior). Of course you need to figure out if your week 1 or week 2 (i.e. green bin and yellow bin week or green bin and red bin week)

Wow you're lucky you still get full rubbish and recycling collection from your council. All of ours is all userpays with private collection companies, so the dates differ.

That's a good thing to check! Here's Whakatane:

Christmas and New Year's Day - NO COLLECTIONS
Christmas and New Year's Day Collections will be on the SATURDAY PRIOR. ie 25 Dec 2012 collected on 22 Dec 2012, 1 Jan 2013 collected on the 29 Dec 2012.
All other days as normal.

Our normal day is Tuesday...

Rung them and they said put it out Wednesday, then a flyer arrived in the letterbox saying put it out Monday...

The truck came round today Sunday...

Luckily we saw them coming...
