Council’s inorganic service not being run as usual


Waikato District Council’s inorganic service will not be taking place as usual.
The service, which is traditionally held around this time of year, wasn’t included in the refuse and recycling targeted rate for 2018/19 as this service is inconsistent with the Government’s direction to reduce waste going to landfill, Council’s Acting General Manager Service Delivery Roger MacCulloch says.
“We are working with our contractors on the timing of what a revised collection looks like and when this could occur.”
Council is asking all those who have already started to put their inorganic items out on the kerb, to bring it back onto their property.
“The long-term future of the inorganic collection will be part of a solid waste review which will be started this year and will help us form the next Long Term Plan (LTP). You will be able to give your feedback on the inorganic service as part of this review later this year,” Mr MacCulloch says.
