Multiple bins are not offered by the Council after the LTP consultation process in April 2015.
There were 137 submissions received during the LTP consultation process in April 2015: of these, over 70% were against the proposal, primarily because the proposed increase in rates would disadvantage residents on fixed incomes and also households that produced low amounts of waste. The Council therefore opted to continue providing the existing user-pays bag and recycling bin collection service, and asked staff to continue investigating on ways to further divert waste from landfill.
The Council’s Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP) is going to be reviewed this year, and we intend to develop an action plan that would increase diversion of waste materials from landfill. The WMMP will be put out for consultation once it has been reviewed and a new draft document has been prepared. The outcomes of the WMMP consultation process will then be fed into the budgets for the upcoming draft Long Term Plan 2018-28, and will be put out for final consultation with the LTP in early 2018.
