Council staff to rifle through recycling in bid to improve waste collection

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Are you a gold sticker recycler?
You'll soon find out as council officials start checking yellow recycling bins over coming weeks.

From Monday a four-strong team will be carrying out spot checks on 7500 bins across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula to ensure residents have not put the wrong items out for recycling.

If you get it right? You get a gold sticker slapped on your bin.

But if you've mixed your shopping receipts, bottle lids or plastic bags in with your beer bottles and plastic trays you can expect a note in your letter box with tips on how to recycle correctly.
