Kerbside rubbish and recycling pick-up are one day later this week

22 October 2018

There will be no Kerbside rubbish and recycling collection on Monday 22 October because of the Labour Day public holiday so collections for the rest of the week will be one day late.

It is Week 1 in our fortnightly recycling collection, so if the address sticker on your wheelie bin has a 1 next to your usual collection day, put out your wheelie bin along with your glass crate and blue rubbish bag on the kerbside by 7:30am for collection - one day later than usual.

Please don’t overfill your glass crate

Only fill your glass crate as far as the brim. And please don't put out broken crates. If your crate is broken, bring it to one of our Council offices and we'll replace it FREE. If you need additional crates, we sell them for $15.

We can only collect glass left in council crates - it doesn't matter from which council, they're all made to the same specification. The runners clip them to the truck while they're sorting the coloured glass. Please don't leave your glass in other types of crates, eg fish crates or cardboard boxes.

After-hours drop-off sites and rubbish compactors are available

If you’re visiting the Coromandel for Labour Weekend but leaving before your Kerbside collection day, you can drop off your rubbish in our official blue rubbish bags and recycling for FREE at any of our seven Refuse Transfer Stations.

Check our website at www.tcdc.govt.nz/rts for their hours and locations.

All of our transfer stations are open until 5:30pm over the long weekend, including Labour Day Monday.
