Waimakariri District Council is rolling out deliveries of its brand new recycling wheelie bins to the District at the beginning of next week.
Deliveries begin on Monday 28 February and should be completed by the end of March. The Council’s Solid Waste Asset Manager, Kitty Waghorn, says there are over fourteen thousand bins to be delivered around the District. “Although you might see wheelie bins being delivered to your neighbour, it doesn’t mean that you have been missed out if you don’t get one”. The bins are being delivered to a predetermined distribution pattern, planned out by the contractors TransPacific Industries Group Ltd and bin manufacturers SULO-Talbot Ltd.
“With each bin there will be an information pack which will give full details on collection days and the sort of materials that people can put into the bin”, says Mrs Waghorn. “We are also undertaking an advertising programme on radio and in local newspapers, telling people when to expect delivery of their bins and the days they will be collected”.
Delivery of the recycling wheelie bins will be finalised by the end of March and the collections, based on a two week rotation system, will begin 4 April 2011.
