Trial kerbside rubbish collection for Clydevale and Tuapeka Mouth
Owners of residential properties in the Clydevale and Tuapeka Mouth area could enjoy permanent kerbside rubbish collection if enough of them take advantage of a trial starting later this month.
Clutha District Council service delivery manager Jules Witt said the service will be provided on a trial basis until October 2023, when the council’s current kerbside collection contract ends.
“If enough properties commit to joining the service and good feedback is received during this trial period, council will look to make the collection permanent in the area," Mr Witt said. As this is a trial, the service will be optional to residents on the collection route as well as those who are willing to bring their bin to a collection point, he said.
The start date for the trial is Tuesday 25 January, with bins being delivered over the week beginning 18 January.
In the leadup to the introduction of the new service, the trial kerbside collection service that has been operating from behind the Clydevale pool, will end on 18 January.
More information and an application form have been sent to all properties along the collection route. Residential household or business properties are eligible to apply for a set of bins. Vacant sections and empty buildings are not.
