What is Council proposing for Rural waste services?
Council is proposing two options which are explained below:
Kerbside rubbish and recycling collection using wheelie bins and a crate for glass.
Smart Environmental (Waste contractor) has estimated that this will cost between $350-$450 per property per year to service.
* As part of the 2018-28 Long-term Plan consultation Council will assess the way refuse services rates are charged to recoup costs across the district.
If this service was to go ahead it would be good to give feedback if you want to pay the costs as indicated or like to see the costs equalised (same for all) across the entire District for the new service (Cost equalised across rural, lakes and urban)
Continue with no service
No service = no extra charge to rates
* This would mean current temporary collection areas, access to Landfill drop-off or bag collection points won’t be available.
