The Christchurch wheelie bin stocktake began in July 2016. It is expected to take approximately three years to complete through Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.
If it is, please ensure your address is on the bin lid and the bin is placed at kerbside on your next collection day.
Contact 03 941 8999 or email@example.com with your property address and contact information if your bin was not tagged.
Check the stocktake street listing [XLSX, 282 KB] to see if your property was included in previous rounds.
After the major earthquakes, many bins have been misplaced, stolen or damaged.
The purpose of the wheelie bin stocktake is to save on the cost of the collection disposal and processing of material paid for by rates and to make sure properties are not receiving additional services above their entitlement, as this is unfair to other ratepayers.
The Council will save $9.3 million net by 2029 when its current contract with Waste Management concludes.
Bins are allocated a radio frequency identification tag (RFID). RFID tags identify the property a bin is allocated to, allowing for a more efficient service.
Waste Management is carrying out this stocktake.
When it's time for the stocktake at your property you will receive a flyer in the mailbox with instructions on what you need to do.
A small reflective sticker will be placed on bins that have been tagged.
Note: If you use the assisted kerbside collection service you do not need to follow these instructions.
