Extra Skips & DCC Rubbish collections Friday 24 & Saturday 25 October

Make sure your flat is cleaned out thanks to extra Skips, recycling and rubbish collections! Don’t get stung by your landlord or the ORC, make sure you make use of the skips and extra collections, and if you have goods to giveaway call the right people to pick them up for you!

Reusable goods such as couches and chairs can be picked up for free by local charity shops, so don't leave them on the footpath put them to good use! Maps and info available on the OUSA Facebook page.

Skips will be out on Friday 24 October & Saturday 25 October 9-4pm; the DCC collections will be done 2pm-4pm.

If you can, it’s probably best to get rid of your rubbish before 3.30pm, as skips which are taken away  to be emptied towards the end of the collection period may not be replaced with a new skip.

If skips located closest to your flat are full, please take your rubbish to another skip.

Thanks for your help to keep north Dunedin clean. More information
