To compensate for rubbish collections cancelled due to snow last week, the Dunedin City Council contractors will pick up any extra recycling next Tuesday.
The council had to cancel kerbside collections last Tuesday because of the weather conditions so the council's recycling collection contractor offered to pick up any excess.
Council waste contract supervisor Peter Moroney said the contractor would collect extra glass and those items ordinarily placed in the yellow-lidded wheelie bin, as long as it was contained safely.
"For those residents who missed a `blue week' collection, please put any excess glass recycling into sturdy boxes or similar containers and leave it out with your blue bin."
Those who missed a "yellow week" collection needed to ensure excess recycling paper, cardboard, plastic, steel and aluminium was inside tied plastic bags or enclosed in containers so it did not blow away.
