Hi Rick thanks for the info re glass recycling. I have just made a submission on the WBOP website regarding this issue and urge others to do the same. We are one of very few areas in the country that does not have separate glass collection containers at the curbside. The risk is that people who can’t get to the ‘drop off’ places just put their glass in the rubbish bins where it goes into landfills.
Everyone who is concerned about this can to go to the Council Website and send them a message. Here is the link http://www.westernbay.govt.nz/our-services/rubbish-recycling-waste/Pages/default.aspx then select the section that says ‘read more about it here’ *Changes to kerbside mixed glass collection are taking place in March 2018. Talk to your rubbish contractor for more information, or read more about these changes here.*
