CBD Rubbish Collection
Businesses can put out their blue bags and pre-paid cardboard recycling in the collection zones at 8am and 2pm, and the items will be picked up half an hour later. The 10 collection areas have been located so that staff from nearby businesses have no more than 50m to walk with their bags and recycling. See the press release below for more information.
Businesses can put out their blue bags, wheelie bins and pre-paid cardboard recycling in the collection zones to be picked up at 3pm, Monday to Friday. There are 3 collection areas located in Arrowtown. See the Information Flyer below for more details.
