Kia ora folks. The recycling station at Hank Edwards Reserve has been stuffed full with paper, plastics and cans. There is no room for more until the station is emptied. We’ve advised the Council. Please hold off with those items in the meantime.
There is still room for bottles of all kinds, but please be considerate of neighbours and restrict bottle recycling to between 10 am and 5 pm.
It was easy to see that people have been putting items that aren’t allowed, such as soft plastic bags, into the recycling. That could mean the whole lot will have to go to the dump and not the recyclers. Please check the advisory notices on the station.
If you have bins for the regular fortnightly collections, please use those rather than the public recycling station. The next collection day will be 06 January 2020.
