New recycling bins ready for home delivery

May 12th, 2015
[TDC press release]

From next Monday, 18th May, new 240-litre recycling bins will be delivered to over 17,000 properties throughout the Tasman District.

Tasman residents on recycling routes will be receiving a larger recycling bin, as part of an improved recycling service, which is designed to reduce waste to landfill.

The new black bin with a yellow lid will be used for paper, cardboard, cans and plastic. The blue crate will be used for glass only.

The improved service will see rubbish collected every week and recycling every second week. The service will start from 29th June, and will cost no more than the current service.

Each bin will allocated to a specific address, with a unique number and address printed on the side of the bin. An information booklet and a collection calendar will be included under the lid.

Council is asking all residents to use their existing blue crate for all recycling until the new service starts. The new recycling bin should not be used until 29th June.

Further information is available on or by calling the Council on 03 543 8400.
