Public holiday collections (this information is on the Council website)
Auckland Council rubbish and recycling collections, with some exceptions, happen one day later than usual after a public holiday.
- Parnell and Newmarket: no changes to Thursday night rubbish collections for red lidded wheelie bins.
- Inner-CBD: no changes to kerbside collections for rubbish bags, recycling bags and paper/cardboard.
- North Shore and Waitakere: no changes to business evening kerbside rubbish bag collection and business recycling and paper/cardboard collections.
If you use a private rubbish collection service, contact your provider to ask about their holiday schedules.
