Hurry…There Is Still Time!

Published: 08-Aug-2017

Thousands of people have already had their say, have you had yours? Submissions for council’s waste management minimisation plan close on Friday, and the response from the community to date has been overwhelming.

rubbishMore than 2000 submissions have been received on the matter, with correspondents given the choice of three options as to what they would like to see happen with the future of council rubbish collection in the district.

The package of choices is accompanied by a special online calculator, which allows respondents to work out the cost impact each option would have on their current rate bill.

Not tried it yet?

It is easy.

Just follow this link – www.waimakariri.govt.nz/rubbish and have your say.

Once the consultation closes, a public hearing to hear submissions will be held, most likely at the end of the month.

The hearing process will be followed by a full report to council.
