New im­proved re­cy­cling ser­vice for res­i­dents

Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page -

Mata­mata- Pi­ako res­i­dents will have more op­por­tu­ni­ties to re­cy­cle when a wheelie bin is in­tro­duced to the kerb­side col­lec­tion ser­vice from Oc­to­ber 14.

If you cur­rently re­ceive the kerb­side col­lec­tion ser­vice, you will soon have rub­bish bags, a green crate and a new wheelie bin.

Group man­ager ser­vice de­liv­ery, Fiona Vessey said there are a few changes that res­i­dents need to be aware of to en­sure a smooth tran­si­tion in Oc­to­ber.

‘‘Peo­ple need to know that their rub­bish bags will still be col­lected weekly. All re­cy­cling will be col­lected fort­nightly.

The green crates will be for glass only and the new wheelie bin will be for all other main re­cy­clables, this in­cludes plas­tics (1-7), tins, cans, pa­per and card­board.’’

The new wheelie bins are be­ing de­liv­ered over the next few months and in­clude an in­for­ma­tion hand­book in­side.

‘‘The hand­book should tell you ev­ery­thing you need to know, in­clud­ing how to know what day and fort­night you will have all of your rub­bish and re­cy­cling col­lected.’’
