Changes to Rubbish Collections
DUE TO GOVERNMENT DIRECTIVES THERE ARE MAJOR CHANGES TO COUNCIL RUBBISH COLLECTIONS TO MINIMISE HUMAN CONTACT AND THE SPREAD OF COVID-19.
Starting from next week, Monday 30 March, your kerbside refuse collection will need to be placed in your recycling wheelie bin and will be collected fortnightly.
THE FORTNIGHTLY COLLECTION WILL BE ON YOUR NORMAL RECYCLING DAY IN YOUR NORMAL RECYCLING WEEK.
**FOR OPOUTERE THIS WILL START ON OUR NORMAL “WEEK 1” CYCLE, MEANING OUR BINS WILL BE EMPTIED EVERY FORTNIGHT STARTING MONDAY APRIL 6. TCDC has stated we will not get a collection on Monday March 30.
- ALL household rubbish goes into a blue bag as normal (don’t worry if you run out, any tied bag is ok) but this goes IN the wheelie bin.
- Recycling goes into a separate plastic bag (any bag is ok) and this also goes IN the wheelie bin.
- Transfer stations and compactors are still operating
- Check out the council’s dedicated page for changes to kerbside collections where there is a great deal of useful information.
