It’s Time to Start Using Your New Bins

Published: 01-Jul-2019

The much anticipated expanded kerbside collection service starts from Monday, and the new bins can now start being used.

With the introduction of the organics and rubbish bins, there are some changes to be aware of. Plastic items going into a red bin

Rubbish collections, including bags, will change from a weekly to a fortnightly collection. This will alternate with recycling. Organics will be collected weekly.

Some areas will have changed collection days – letters have been sent to those properties where there are changes. Otherwise, the collection day remains the same.

To find out what day your collections are, or to sign up for text or email reminders, visit waimakariri.govt.nz/rethinkrubbish.

For details about how to use the new bins, and what you can and can’t put in them, refer to Your Guide to the Kerbside Collection Service or visit our website for more information.

A series of videos showing you more about how to use the bins will be coming to the Council’s Facebook page soon.
