13 December 2010
Our facilities and services will have shorter opening hours over the Christmas and New Year period - that's from Friday 24 December 2010 to Tuesday 4 January 2011.
Our Clean Streets team will collect rubbish on the usual days over the holidays
The good news is there's no change to rubbish collections - they'll be collected as usual (that's because Christmas and New Year days both fall on a Saturday).
All libraries will close from 25 December to 28 December, and from 1 January to 4 January. Hours for the three days between these public holidays vary, so check the Holiday Hours 2010/11 link below for details.
After that, most pools are open although the hours vary. Freyberg Pool, Oriental Parade, is the exception. It will be closed from 25 December 2010 to 24 January 2011.
Opening hours for our recreation centres, museums, galleries, zoo, Botanic Garden and Council offices also vary, so use the link below to check them out, or pick up a handy brochure from your local library, pool or recreation centre.
