Southbrook Resource Recovery Park and Oxford Transfer Station
Closed on Good Friday – operating under normal hours for the rest of the Easter weekend, although the ReSale Store (our second hand shop at Southbrook RRP) will be closed on Easter Sunday.
The Dudley Park Aquatic Centre is closed for maintenance and will reopen on Friday 26 April.
The Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre will have reduced hours over the Easter period as outlined below. The programmes all take a break over the long weekend, so no Aquarobics or Learn to Swim lessons. This makes more room for inflatables (1-3pm) and recreational and lane swimming. The facility will be observing Easter Trading Laws and restricting the sale of goggles, togs and similar products until after 1pm on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
