The glass recycling bins at FreshChoice Ōmokoroa and Challenge Ōmokoroa will remain, according to supermarket owner/operator Steve Ling.
He’s today met Waste Management’s general manager for the lower North Island, David Howie.
Waste Management was proposing to charge Fresh Choice more than $2,000 per week and Challenge around $1,200 per week for the collection and disposal of the glass from February. The bins were installed last year as a replacement for household-funded kerbside glass recycling.
Steve Ling thanks everyone who has helped achieve today’s positive outcome and says it’s a magnificent achievement for the local community.
