New recycling boost for Cust Community

Wednesday, July 31, 2019   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: recycling, waste, management

Waimakariri District Council media release: 29th July 2019

Rural residents in the Cust area will be relieved they no longer need to drive to Oxford or Rangiora to deal with recyclables, as a rural recycling drop-off centre opens within the community.

The Council investigated and approved the new drop-off facility, located behind the Cust Hotel - following several requests from the growing Cust Community.

It is the first of its kind in the District, and will be trialled for one year.

The idea was raised in late 2017 in a submission from the Cust Community Network to the Waste Management and Minimisation Plan, and to the Long Term Plan in April 2018. The Network canvassed community interest in the initiative, and it was clear by responses that it would be well supported.

Councillor Robbie Brine is the Council's Solid and Hazardous Waste Portfolio holder. He said that the Council are excited to be able to offer this trial to the residents of Cust and look forward to its success. “If this goes as well as we hope, not only will the service continue, but it’s possible we could provide drop-off facilities in similar rural areas of the District, who don’t receive a kerbside collection service.”

Signage is available to let users know what can and cannot go in the bins and Council’s Solid and Hazardous Waste Manager Kitty Waghorn says “What we can take at the drop-off facility is no different to what we take at kerbside. Please only put in the items that we can accept, so that we can keep the recycling stream contamination free.”

The Cust Community Network and residents joined Mayor David Ayers and Councillor Brine at 2pm on Sunday afternoon to celebrate its opening.

The centre will be open to the public from Monday and will be open seven days a week between 7am and 10pm.
