Kerbside Rubbish Collection - As Normal

Please note: as collection rounds are quicker at this time of year, bins should be placed out the night before, or by 6am on the relevant day, to ensure they are available for emptying. Maximum weight is 80kg.

Please note there are no changes to the Timaru CBD or Residential bin collections, Christmas and New Years Day fall on a weekend.

The emergency telephone number for all services in all areas is Timaru (03) 687 7200.
