Rubbish Collection

Current location in the site

The Rubbish Kerbside Collection is weekly and begins at 7.30am (parts of the Main South Road begin at 7am).

All rubbish must be in official Selwyn District Council rubbish wheelie bins or bags. Please note:  If your bin/bag does weigh more than in the descriptions below it will be tagged with a note informing you why it has not been emptied.

Rubbish is collected every week from either a 240 litre or 80 litre wheelie bin. Households can also use 60 litre rubbish bags, which are available from Council Service Centres and supermarkets.
