The next regular recycling collection dates are: 21 December, 04 January and 18 January.
In the past Horowhenua District Council have provided a recycling station for 3 or 4 months over summer near the toilets on Hank Edwards Reserve. This has caused a lot of distress to residents within a 200 metre radius who have suffered from the noise it creates — smashing bottles, people using the station in the middle of the night.
After several failed attempts to instead revert to the old Saturday recycling truck system and to find a different location, this year things have changed.
The recycling station will be installed around 14 December 2020 and will be available until around 07 January 2021. This is peak visitor time.
Signs will ask people to keep the noise down.
We also ask that people use the station only during daylight hours — the slots may be closed overnight anyway.
The regular fortnightly recycling collection at the gate continues. Please use that facility if you can and only take your recycling to the station if that regular collection doesn’t work for you. That will also help reduce noise and the problem of the container filling up. The next regular collection dates are: 21 December, 04 January and 18 January.
