Confusion on rubbish pick-up
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.
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.
