After the major earthquakes, many bins have been misplaced, stolen or damaged. The purpose of the Wheelie Bin Stocktake is to save on the cost of the collection disposal and processing of material which is paid for by rates and to make sure properties are not receiving additional services above their entitlement as this is unfair to other ratepayers.
The Council will save $9.3 million net by 2029 when its current contract with Waste Management concludes.
Bins are allocated a Radio Frequency Identification tag (RFID). RFID tags identify the property a bin is allocated to, allowing for a more efficient service. Waste Management is carrying out this stocktake. This will involve:
When the stocktake is taking at your property you will receive a flyer in the mailbox. The flyer includes instructions on what you need to do.
These instructions are:
A small reflective sticker will be placed on bins that have been tagged.
Bins that are not at kerbside will not be able to be tagged.
Bins without tags will not be collected after the stocktake is completed at your property.
Note: If you use the Assisted Kerbside Collection Service, you do not need to follow these instructions.
