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
All rubbish must be in official Selwyn District Council rubbish wheelie bins or bags. There is a weight restriction of 60kg for 240 litre bins, 30kg for 80 litre bins and 12kg for rubbish bags. If your bin / bag is too heavy it may be tagged by the contractor with a note informing you why it was not collected.
