Changes to Rubbish and Recycling Services On Easter Weekend

Your normal collection day for rubbish and recycling will change for Good Friday (Week 2 recycling) but not Easter Monday (Week 1 recycling).


  • Only official Waimakariri District Council refuse bags and recycling bins will be collected
  • Refuse bags and recycling bins must be placed for collection no later than 7am including in the Kaiapoi CBD
  • Please check the label on the side of your recycling bin if you’re unsure whether your collection is Week 1 or Week 2
  • If you miss your collection you can take your official Waimakariri District Council bags and your sorted recycling to the Oxford Transfer Station and the Southbrook Resource Recovery Park during normal operating hours (see below), free of charge.
