Solid Waste Management (Collection and Disposal)
You may soon notice that our official blue rubbish bags will look a little different – Our Council logo is missing. This is only temporary.
Like many businesses, we are experiencing significant shipping delays, including our official refuse bags. Unfortunately, this is out of our control.
We have managed to secure a small shipment to see us through, but the blue bags won’t have our logo printed on them. These blue bags will still be considered as an official refuse bag and will be accepted by kerbside collection.
We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
We undertake this activity to ensure that the natural environment is protected from detrimental effects of solid waste disposal, and that the waste diversion and disposal needs of the District community are met.
We are required under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008 (WMA) to promote effective and efficient waste management and minimisation with the District. A key part of doing this is to adopt a Solid Waste Management (Asset) and Minimisation Plan (SWaMMP) - you can view this document here.
We also have an obligation under the Health Act 1956 to ensure that our waste management systems protect public health.
