Waikato District Council’s inorganic rubbish collection won’t be taking place as usual.
The collection, traditionally held this time of year, wasn’t included in the refuse and recycling targeted rate for 2018/19.
The service is inconsistent with the Government’s direction to reduce waste going to landfill, said Council’s acting general manager Service Delivery Roger MacCulloch.
“We are working with our contractors on the timing of what a revised collection looks like and when this could occur.”
Council has asked anyone who have already started putting inorganic items out on the kerb, to bring it back onto their property.
“The long-term future of the inorganic collection will be part of a solid waste review which will be started this year and will help us form the next Long Term Plan. You will be able to give your feedback on the inorganic service as part of this review later this year,” Mr MacCulloch he said.
