Public consultations on the Council’s 2018-28 Long Term Plan are now open!
Tauranga City Council proposes to introduce a rates-funded, Council-led rubbish and mixed recycling and organic waste collection service for all households by 2021.
We also would like to introduce an interim kerbside glass recycling service as soon as possible this year in response to private collection providers ceasing to accept glass for recycling.
Both of these proposals are in the draft Long Term Plan 2018-28 which is NOW OPEN for public consultation (until 4pm, Monday 16 April 2018).
These services would enable and encourage Tauranga residents to recycle more and send less waste to landfill and, if adopted into the final plan, could have a big impact on our community and our environment.
But residents need to have their say on these proposals in order to make them happen.
