No kerbside collections this New Year's

Residents should be advised there will be no kerbside collections on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. File photo.

Tauranga City Council is alerting residents to the fact there will be no kerbside rubbish and recycling collections on New Year's Day (Monday, January 1, 2018).

Residents whose usual collection falls on this day are advised to put their bins/bags out two days earlier.

“Instead of putting bins/bags out on New Year's Day, please put them out Saturday, December 30, 2017 for collection.”

My provider did nothing to inform me. This whole rubbish collection is a dogs breakfast. I will cancel next year when my provider will no longer accept bottles.

We were advised by mail 3 weeks ago via a small note in the letterbox. Empty bins for the visitors at xmas and the hangers on at new years...too easy.

Why are council advising, as far as i am aware they dont provide any collection services. I thought they were all privately owned.

Shouldn't the Council have advised residents earlier in the week re the change to Monday rubbish collections for Xmas & New Year. A small note in the the letter boxes of those who are affected by this change would have been appreciated.

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
