Key tips for a warmer, drier home – 2/9 – Curtains

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

• Make it your kids job to open curtains and windows in the morning
• Close your curtains just before sunset to keep the cold night air out
• Opening your curtains during the day allows the sun to heat your home for free
• If you use non-standard window dressings make sure they fit snug around the frame
• You might be able to get curtains cheap or free from your local curtain bank

Kerbside waste collections

Communications from Tauranga City Council

We will be introducing kerbside waste collections for all households from 1 July 2021.

That means you will be provided with new rubbish, recycling and food scraps bins to use alongside your current glass crate.

The service will cost $230 for the first year, and will be added to residential rates from 1 July 2021. You can also choose to have an additional garden waste collection for an extra $60 for the first year.

The new collections will make reducing waste easier, more accessible and more affordable for our whole community.

We know you'll have lots of questions, so head to our website for more info: www.tauranga.govt.nz...
