New recycling system starts next week

The Whakatāne District’s new kerbside recycling system starts next week, with a progressive roll-out for residents across the district.

The brochure delivered with each of the new yellow-lidded recycling bins explains how the system works, and when each area’s first fortnightly collection will take place. The Council website’s waste search tool (  has now been updated and can be accessed at any time to check the date of residents’ next recycling and greenwaste collections.

A key feature of the new system is that the existing recycling crate will now be used only for glass, with all other recyclable material – paper and cardboard, steel and aluminium cans, grades 1-7 plastics, and plastic bags – going in the yellow-lidded bin. While the recycling collection will be less frequent, the extra capacity provided by the new yellow-lidded bin will allow residents to recycle a greater volume of recyclable material. The ability to recycle grades 1 – 7 plastics (rather than just grades 1 & 2) will also mean more material is recycled and less waste is sent to landfill.

Recycling collections will be undertaken on the same day of the week as the general refuse collection, and on alternate weeks to the greenwaste collection, where that service is provided. Some residents in Ōhope and Murupara will see their greenwaste collection days change to accommodate the new service. Those people affected will receive letters setting out the new greenwaste collection arrangement.

Council Solid Waste Manager Nigel Clarke says the Council anticipates there will be a ‘settling in period’ while people get used to the new system.

“We know that separating out glass from the rest of the recycling stream has worked very well in other areas, and having a separate bin for other recyclables will allow us to increase the amount of material collected and reduce the volume and cost of the waste sent to landfill,” he explains. “We expect that people will also appreciate having a closed bin that means lighter material doesn’t get blown around, or water-logged when it rains. Our waste collection drivers tell us that many people are already putting out their new recycling bins. It’s great that people are so keen to use them, but we won’t have the equipment required to empty them available till next week, so please don’t put your new yellow-lidded bin out until your first recycling collection day in October.”

Anyone in doubt about how the new system works can check the brochure or fridge magnet supplied with the yellow-lidded recycling bins, go to the Council website, or ring the Council on 07 306 0500.

  18. Thanks for your article. I would like to say that your health insurance brokerage service also works well with the benefit of the coordinators of a group insurance policy. The health insurance professional is given a long list of benefits needed by individuals or a group coordinator. What a broker really does is look for individuals as well as coordinators which in turn best match up those desires. Then he reveals his tips and if each party agree, the actual broker formulates a legal contract between the 2 parties.

  19. Thanks for the various tips shared on this blog site. I have observed that many insurance firms offer clients generous discount rates if they elect to insure a couple of cars with them. A significant variety of households have got several autos these days, specifically those with older teenage young children still dwelling at home, and the savings with policies might soon increase. So it is a good idea to look for a bargain.

  20. I’d also like to express that most of those who find themselves devoid of health insurance can be students, self-employed and those that are jobless. More than half of those uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not really feel they are looking for health insurance since they are young and healthy. Their income is typically spent on homes, food, and entertainment. Most people that do go to work either complete or not professional are not given insurance by means of their work so they move without as a result of rising valuation on health insurance in the states. Thanks for the tips you talk about through your blog.

  21. I believe that avoiding prepared foods could be the first step to help lose weight. They will taste good, but processed foods include very little vitamins and minerals, making you eat more only to have enough strength to get over the day. Should you be constantly feeding on these foods, transferring to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more strength while taking in less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

  27. Se obtiene una mayor precisión en el mecanizado de la pieza. Otro motivo por el que las piezas mecanizadas a medida tienden a ser más caras que las piezas estandarizadas es que son producidas con una mayor precisión e integridad y con materiales de mayor calidad y resistencia.

  28. One important issue is that when you are searching for a education loan you may find that you will want a co-signer. There are many scenarios where this is correct because you might discover that you do not employ a past history of credit so the loan provider will require you have someone cosign the loan for you. Good post.
