Con­fu­sion on rub­bish pick-up

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The first week of the new rub­bish and re­cy­cling ini­tia­tive has drawn to an end but not with­out a few chal­lenges.

‘‘A new ini­tia­tive as big as this can take a while for ev­ery­one in­volved to get used to and we have no­ticed some com­mon con­fu­sion around the dis­trict,’’ said project man­ager Dave Locke.

Here are a few re­minders:


Rub­bish bags are col­lected ev­ery week. Te Aroha – Thurs­day. Mata­mata, Wa­haroa, Wal­ton – Fri­day.

Mor­rinsville, Tahuna,




Waitoa and Wai­hou – Fri­day.


Your wheelie-bin and crate will be col­lected ev­ery fort­night on the same day as your rub­bish. Use your green crate for re­cy­cling glass. Use your new black wheelie-bin for re­cy­cling clean pa­per, plas­tics, tins and card­board.

Putting your rub­bish and re­cy­cling on the kerb­side

Place your wheelie bin at least me­tre away from other ob­jects.
