Queenstown Lakes District Council will run a one-off free collection of old kerbside wheelie bins.
Makarora, Kingston and Glenorchy and residents living along the highways to these townships are asked to put their old, empty bins (including unwanted QLDC red-lidded bins) out by 7.00am on the following days:
Makarora Wednesday 30 October (not the normal collection day).
Kingston Thursday 31 October.
Glenorchy Friday 1 November.
Queenstown/Wakatipu residents are asked to put their old, empty blue-lidded bins out by 7.00am on their usual collection day between 4-8 November.

A challenge facing too many young men is the sense that they have to live up to the unspoken rules of masculinity – clichés such as “boys don’t cry” and “toughen up”.
White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
