Waste collection may expand to include organic waste as the Central Otago District Council reviews existing services.

CODC’s rubbish and recycling services contract finishes in June 2023 and the region’s residents are being asked their preferences for waste disposal.

The CODC operates transfer stations in Alexandra, Cromwell, Ranfurly and Roxburgh, as well as general rubbish drop-off facilities in Tarras and Patearoa, and recycling drop-offs
throughout the region.

Kerbside collections consist of three bins: fortnightly general rubbish, fortnightly recycling and eight-weekly glass.

The review of waste services opened for public feedback last week, and will allow the successful contractor time to prepare before commencing in July 2023.

Options under review include the provision of kerbside services to residents in Tarras, Queensberry and Patearoa, the introduction of a re-use centre in Cromwell and the addition of green waste and organic/food waste collections.

Public consultation on the CODC’s waste services close on September 24.
