Let’s fix Tauranga’s waste problem
Tauranga City Council will introduce a rates-funded, Council-led rubbish, mixed recycling and organic (garden and/or food) waste collection service for all households by 2021.
We will also introduce an interim kerbside glass recycling service in October 2018 (subject to tender award) in response to Tauranga’s private collection providers ceasing to accept glass for recycling.
These rates-funded services will enable and encourage Tauranga residents to recycle more and send less waste to landfill and could have a big impact on Tauranga’s community and our environment.
The details of the full proposed service (such as collection frequencies, what we’ll collect, size and types of bins, user-pays, etc.) will be further investigated and determined.
