District’s new wheelie bin and crate kerbside collection service starts today,
and Ashburton District Council is requesting residents who may not have their
bins or bin labels to please contact Council.
most properties were delivered their bins in August ready for the start of the
new service, some properties do not have their bins yet or are missing their
labels with the collection day and week.
Waste Recovery Manager Craig Goodwin says additional properties requiring bins
were identified during the bin delivery process, and this has resulted in a
shortage of yellow recycling wheelie bins.
you everyone who has already contacted us about their bins. We are still
delivering the red wheelie bins to properties, however if residents don’t have
their bin in time for their collection day, they should use either a black ADC
bag or similar black rubbish bag. For the next two weeks, these properties can
also continue using their green recycling crates.
“During the next two weeks, we will be delivering the red wheelie bins with
free clear recycling bags for residents to use until their yellow recycling
bins arrive. We are sourcing additional yellow bins and anticipate these will
arrive in coming weeks.
you have not already let Council know that you haven’t got your bins, please
get in touch.”
properties do not have bin labels stating what day and week they are collected,
and Mr Goodwin says these labels should arrive in residents’ mailboxes in
coming days. “Until these labels are delivered, there are maps available on the
Council website showing what days and weeks each area is collected. If your
labels don’t arrive by the end of next week, please let us know.”
