Time for the new red Greenwaste Sticker!

Time for the new red Greenwaste Sticker!

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

From October 1, you will need to have the new red sticker displayed on your greenwaste wheelie bin.

This service is a voluntary fortnightly collection using a 240 litre wheelie bin. The service costs $71 for the year though the price reduces depending on the date of purchase. At these prices the service is very attractive. It is even cheaper for those who are Super Gold card holders!

How do I purchase the service?

You can purchase the greenwaste service by going in to any of the Council's Library Plus Centres, the Hawera Administration Building or the I-Site Visitor Centre. Alternatively you can phone the Council on 278 0555 or 0800 111 323.
Once you have purchased the greenwaste service you will be provided with a sticker which must be placed on the front of your bin. This identifies that you have purchased the greenwaste service and that your bin needs to be oicked up. The colour of the sticker will change each year for ease of identification.

What can I put in this bin?
Greenwaste and greenwaste only. That is things like lawn clippings, weeds, branches and other organic waste.
