Skips in North Dunedin

At the beginning and end of each academic year, as well as the last Friday of the month, skips are placed in locations around North Dunedin to collect larger rubbish that won't be collected in regular collections.

**Please note: when full skips are removed by the contractors towards the end of the collection period,  they may not be replaced. It's a good idea to get your rubbish to the skips as early as possible.
