Thames Coromandel District changes to refuse collection and recycling

Posted March 30, 2020
The extraordinary circumstances of COVID-19 mean Thames Coromandel District Council is having to change how they handle collecting rubbish and recycling.
From Monday 30 March, Kerbside refuse collection will need to be placed inside your recycling wheelie bin and will be collected FORTNIGHTLY. The fortnightly collection will occur on your normal recycling day in your normal recycling week.
To minimise human contact and the spread of COIVD-19:
Bag all your rubbish and recycling
All rubbish and recycling must be bagged and placed in your recycling wheelie bin and will be collected using low-touch collection methods (mainly side lifters). This is particularly important if your bin falls over, in which case, by bagging all waste and recycling, it will be contained and therefore safer to clean up.
Unfortunately, the collectors are not able to pick up spilled rubbish or overturned bins during this time. Residents are responsible for cleaning up spilt rubbish.
