The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Over the coming months, we'll be fitting Council bins with scannable tags. This will help us improve the recycling service, and know which property the bin belongs to.
There are around 17,000 recycling bins to fit with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag. The roundup is underway from Monday 19 November and will finish in late May 2019.
We'll need you to put your bin at kerbside each week while the roundup is happening in your area. Look out for a flier in your mailbox telling you what you need to do.
If your bin was not tagged during the time period outlined on the letterbox notice, contact 0800 965 468 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your property address.
The roundup of the Waimakariri District’s recycling bins is to make sure ratepayers are getting the bin services they are paying for in their rates. This ensures a fair service for all of the community. It also enables the Council and the contractor to keep more accurate records of the bins in circulation.
An RFID tag is a small plastic disc that contains information such as the property the recycling bin is allocated to.
The RFID tag does not transmit all the time, it is only activated when in close proximity (a few cm) to the receiver on the truck. Other than when the bin is emptied into the truck, it doesn’t do anything as it doesn’t have its own power source.

When it’s time for the roundup at your property, you will receive a notice in your letterbox about a week before letting you know what you need to do.
We are asking residents to put their recycling bin out on their recycling day every week for four weeks, or until a yellow sticker is placed on the side of the bin indicating it has been tagged.
*Look out for a small round yellow sticker on the side of the bin. This will indicate that the tag has been fitted and you can then resume putting your bin out at kerbside as normal.
