Rubbish and Recycling is a Day Later after the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend

The Thames-Coromandel district Kerbside rubbish and recycling collections will be a day later than normal next week because of the Queen's Birthday long weekend. And all the Refuse Transfer Stations will be open on the holiday Monday (4 June) to their Sunday hours.

TCDC transfer stations will be open to their usual hours on Saturday and Sunday.

If your Kerbside collection is usually on Tuesday, it will be picked up on Wednesday instead, and so on around the whole district.

Next week is Week 1 in the fortnightly recycling schedule. If the address sticker on your wheelie bin says “Tue 1”, put the bin and your crate for glass out for collection with your blue TCDC rubbish bag - but remember, a day later than usual.

For the schedule for your area and for a reminder of what can be recycled in the Thames-Coromandel district, go to www.tcdc.govt.nz/kerbside.

Thames-Coromandel district libraries in Thames, Tairua and Mercury Bay are open as usual this Saturday from 9am - 12 noon but closed on Monday 4 June for the Queen's Birthday public holiday.
Thames Centennial Pool is closed on Saturday as usual, open on Sunday 11am - 5pm as usual but closed on the holiday Monday.

The Thames-Coromandel District Council offices are closed on Monday, but if you have an urgent request for service, call their 24/7 Customer Service line on 07 868 0200.
