Rubbish and recycling collection

Dunedin's rubbish collection is a user pays system. This is fairer for everyone as you only pay for what you throw out.

Collection days

This page provides information on Collection days.

DCC rubbish bags

This page contains all the information you need to know about DCC rubbish bags.

Glass recycling bins

Blue bins belong to the property and should have the address written on them. Each household can have up to three blue bins. The recycling service costs form part of your rates.

Yellow-lidded wheelie bins

Find out information on what recycling items go in to your yellow lidded wheelie bin.

Recycling inspections

Kerbside inspections were first undertaken in 2017 to help people improve their recycling, reduce contamination and keep the staff who collect and sort recycling safe.

Medical waste disposal

Rural recycling facilities

Dunedin city boundaries stretch far and wide which means some residents living in rural or satellite areas do not have ready access to DCC’s kerbside collection service for recycling.

Rural skip days

Rural skip days are held in outlying areas of Dunedin City at various times each year. The event dates will be advertised on a sign at each site.

e-Waste

e-Waste is the fastest growing waste stream in developed countries. It is made up of electronic equipment that has come to the end of its useful life and is destined for disposal. It includes for example: televisions, computers, cell phones, photocopiers, printers, stereos, DVD and VCR players, cameras and batteries.

Middlemarch transfer station

Location: Garthmyl Road, Middlemarch (about 1 km from township, on southside just past Golf Club).

Landfill charges and prices

Operation of the landfill is paid for through user charges - the money you pay to dispose of your waste.

Waste Futures

Three Dunedin City Council waste management projects have begun simultaneously. Three projects overlap in many ways and, given their shared timing, we’ve gathered them under the one ‘Waste Futures’ banner.

Energy efficient bulbs

The move toward energy efficient lighting has seen a marked increase in the use of CFLs in New Zealand households. These bulbs offer greater energy savings but are difficult to dispose of due to the mercury content.
