Waikanae Recycling and Green Waste station - proposed closing

Bob from Waikanae Beach

Our KCDC is proposing to close Waikanae's recycling and green waste station within 3 months, from 1 August 2021.
The reason is: "Most users of this recycling station also have kerbside recycling services".
This explanation is literally rubbish! As the council knows well, 56% of retired people in Kapiti exist primarily on the pension, and many of them in Waikanae do NOT have kerbside recycling services because of their cost.
The station is well used by older Waikanae people because of its proximity to their residence. They currently do not have to drive far to recycle their paper, glass and plastic waste and but will have to do if and when the station closes.
Waikanae's council benefits are few and now KCDC is wanting to close the station.
If you want the Waikanae recycling and green waste station to remain open, make sure your local councillor and the council have your views, either directly or through the LTP feedback form (the deadline for which is tomorrow, Monday, at 5pm).
