Although Anzac Day is commemorated on Saturday 25 April 2020 – the public holiday is observed on Monday 27 April. This has some effect on the Council services outlined below.
Council’s off-peak bus services in Blenheim, Picton and Renwick that have been operating during the COVID-19 lockdown period will not operate on Monday 27 April.
Saturday services for Blenheim and Renwick will operate as normal but people are asked not to use public transport if they are feeling unwell. Passengers using the bus to access essential services, such as the supermarket, pharmacy or medical care, should exercise physical distancing when waiting for and travelling on buses.
Stay at least two metres away from other passengers and leave the seat next to you empty. Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before and after your journey.
All of Council’s transfer stations will be closed during the morning of Saturday 25 April and will resume normal operating hours from 1.00 pm.
Council’s transfer stations will be open under normal operating hours on Monday 27 April however, residents in Blenheim and Picton are urged to use the kerbside rubbish and recycling services which will continue to operate as usual, rather than travelling to transfer stations.
Under the COVID-19 Level 4 restrictions, transfer stations will only accept bagged waste to ensure the health and safety of our contractors and of the public during this time. This means people should not be bringing trailer loads of household items or green waste to the transfer station for disposal - now is not the time to carry out a spring clean.
