Extra skips & DCC rubbish collections – Fridays and Saturdays from 30 October until 7 November

Make sure your flat is cleaned out thanks to extra Skips, recycling and rubbish collections! Read the item about the OUSA free shop and donations of furniture & goods to charity shops included in this edition of scarfie.

Skips will be out from 9am to 4pm on Friday 30 October & 6 November as well as Saturday 31 October and 7 November, so you can get rid of all that stuff you can’t put out in your black sacks or recycling bins. The DCC recycling bins and rubbish bag collections will be done between 2pm & 4pm on the same days.

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 at these locations.
More useful tips are available on page 42 of OUSA’s Uni101 booklet.

Please make yourself familiar with the DCC rubbish collection service requirements for using DCC rubbish bags only and when to put out your recycling bins. Non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected.

Thanks for your help with keeping north Dunedin tidy this year.
