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...

We thought this was amazing. What a great way to teach your children the value of saving and getting them to add up the money is a fun way to do some maths.

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Reusable coffee cup manufacturer Biopak has issued a recall for some products, due to the possibility of part of the cup detaching when liquid is present.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) issued the recall on September 30, advising people to stop using it immediately as a user could be burnt or scalded.

What you need to know:

- Contact Biopak or ring 0800 246 725 to get a refund on faulty items.

- The products were sold from January 2013 to September 2020

- All resuable coffee cups (8oz, 12oz, 16oz) in plain green or white should be
returned to Biopak.

- Those with custom names “SexieCoffie”, “Columbit”, “Echo”, “Hedland”, “Crop to Cup” or “Home Grain”. Should be returned immediately.
