Refuse and recycling service changes to be presented at Tamahere Community Committee meeting

02 June 2016

The Tamahere community is encouraged to attend this month’s committee meeting to hear first-hand about the upcoming changes in the way that refuse services are delivered in the district.

The meeting will be an opportunity to come and listen to the Council’s Less Waste Saves More project team, who will be giving a presentation to the committee outlining changes to the services in the area from 1 July, 2016.

These changes will include a weekly recycling collection of two Council supplied crates per household and a collection using pre-paid stickers on any 60L bag.  Residents will also be able to utilise an annual phone-in inorganic collection service.

These are important changes to refuse and recycling in the central area of the district which will be of great interest to local residents, Waikato District Council General Manager Service Delivery, Tim Harty says. “I encourage everyone to attend this community committee meeting to learn more about how this change in service will affect you.”

Meeting details:

Tamahere Community Committee, Tamahere Community Centre, 13 June, 7.30pm
