Rubbish and recycling collections during COVID-19 Alert Level 4

Kerbside rubbish collections are set to continue across the city when the country moves to COVID-19 Alert Level 4 from Thursday 26 March, however kerbside recycling collections will cease from Wednesday 25 March.

The refuse transfer station at 60 Lincoln St will be closed to the public after close of business on Wednesday 25 March. The reuse shop and recycling drop-offs ceased operation on Tuesday 24 March. The decision to close the refuse transfer station to the public and stop kerbside recycling collections reflects the government’s heightened alert levels and guidance on any services classified as non-essential.
