In North Dunedin, Monday is the regular rubbish collection day. If you're using bags, make sure you use the black Dunedin City Council (DCC) rubbish bags which are available from supermarkets or OUSA offices, as other bags won't be collected.
At the beginning and end of each academic year, and the last Friday of the month (some exceptions apply), skips are placed in locations around North Dunedin to collect larger rubbish that won't be picked up in regular collections.
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.
