Kerbside recycling services will be gradually reintroduced across the Taupō District from Tuesday 28 April, when we move to COVID-19 Alert Level 3.
Taupō District Council are asking everybody to adhere to the following recycling schedule to ensure that trucks and sorting facilities can cope with the expected increase in demand and uphold the government’s strict health and safety and social distancing measures:
> Week One (Tuesday 28 April – Friday 1 May): Glass Only. There will be no kerbside recycling on Monday 27 April under Alert Level 4 lockdown rules.
> Week Two (Monday 4 May – Friday 8 May): Glass, Paper and Cardboard Only.
> Week Three (Monday 11 May onwards): Normal recycling collection resumes.
Thank you to everybody who has stockpiled their recycling at home over the last month. Please bear in mind we are expecting larger volumes than normal at kerbside when services resume on Tuesday. There may be some delays in collection, so please be patient as the Council work through this.
