Service centres and libraries

All service centres and libraries will be closed on 4 and 6 February for the Nelson Anniversary Day and Waitangi Day holidays.

Recycling and rubbish collections

There are no changes to collections for these holidays.

Bins out by 7.00am

Things to remember

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.
