Council’s online services are operating as usual. Many enquiries, applications, payments, submissions and other business can be carried out on the Council’s website at: www.marlborough.govt.nz
You can also contact Council via email or telephone. Please address all enquiries to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your contact details and one of the team will contact you. If your request is urgent, call our 24-hour number; Ph: 03 520 7400. Please note call waiting times may be longer than usual due to increased demand.
As of Monday 15 June, kerbside recycling collected in Blenheim and Picton will be processed ready for onward sale to recycling markets where available.
Please ensure only clean recycling is placed in the recycling crate and that the crate is packed and placed in a manner that minimises the potential for littering. Recycling left outside the crate will not be collected.
Excess or oversize recycling material can be taken direct to the Resource Recovery Centre in Blenheim or the Picton Transfer Station.
Rolls of 10 Council refuse bags can still be purchased from supermarkets. Council refuse bag vouchers can be redeemed at Council offices in Picton and Blenheim for rolls of 52. The annual Council refuse bag vouchers for 2020/21 will be issued, via post, as normal in July.
