The University & DCC (Dunedin City Council) provide skips at specific times so you can get rid of all that stuff you can’t put out in your black sacks or recycling bins.
There will be skips out on Friday 18 February from 9am to 4pm and if you still have more rubbish to get rid of, don’t panic, because there will be more skips on Saturday 18 February.
There will be another skip rubbish collection on Friday 24 February plus an extra kerbside collection. For the rest of the year skips will be out on the last Friday of each month with extra skips at the start and end of the semesters.
If skips located closest to your flat are full, please take your rubbish to another skip.
Reminders will appear in scarfie, but check out the website below for the list of 2012 collection dates or refer to page 22 of your Handbook.
Please make yourself familiar with the DCC rubbish collection service requirements for using DCC rubbish bags only and when to put out your recycling bins. Non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected.
Thanks for your co-operation.
