REFUSE AND RECYCLING SERVICES
TO BE IN EFFECT FROM 25 MARCH 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
In the interests of restricting the movement of people and protecting IWK staff, the Kaikoura Resource Recovery Centre the landfill will be closed to the public, and no recycling or reuse services will be provided either at the centre, at kerbside or at any of the other rural recycling facilities.
The following services for disposal of refuse (which will include materials that were previously accepted for recycling) will instead be provided free of charge:
• A weekly kerbside collection of refuse (with glass presented as a separate refuse item) will be provided to areas that had previously received kerbside collections of recycling. A maximum of TWO completely sealed bags of refuse, with a maximum weight of 10kg per bag will be collected from outside each property. Glass will still be collected separately in your green recycling bin – ONE bin per household per collection – please DO NOT put glass in your black bags. Any exceedance of these limits will result in bags or bins being left outside the property.
• Skips for collection of bagged refuse will be provided for 3 hours on one defined day per week at each rural recycling facility. Whilst the skip is present it will be attended by a member of IWK staff, and a maximum of TWO bags of refuse per property will be permitted to be dumped. There will be a separate skip for glass at each site. Please remember your social distancing, if the skip is being used by another person, let them finish disposal and then proceed to the skip yourself.
o Suburban School Recycling point Mondays 9.00am – 12.00 noon
o Lynton Downs Recycling point Tuesdays 9.00am – 12.00 noon

As some of you will spend time in your garden during the lockdown we will be offering a fadge drop off and pickup for greenwaste within the Kaikoura town boundaries.
Please phone IWK if you are interested in this service, there will be a $14 charge for drop off and pick up.
We will accept bank transfer payment options for this, with service provided after the funds appear in our bank account.
These changes reflect the extraordinary times that we are in, and further changes may also occur in the future, but at this stage it is not possible to predict what and when these may be.
ALL ESSENTIAL SERVICE BUSINESS CUSTOMERS OF IWK WILL BE CONTACTED TO DISCUSS HOW WE CAN ASSIST YOUR BUSINESS DURING THE LOCKDOWN.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT AT ANY POINT, PREFERABLY BY PHONE (03 319 7148).
