Clevedon Residents Asked To Keep Inorganic Rubbish

Media Release 23 November 2003

CLEVEDON RESIDENTS ASKED TO KEEP INORGANIC RUBBISH "CLOSE TO HOME"

The final round of Manukau City Council's annual inorganic collection comes to Clevedon Ward in mid December with a plea to rural residents to stack their rubbish on the berm outside their homes and NOT on Council reserves or lay-bys.

Council's Senior Policy Analyst, Patricia Facenfield is asking rural residents to stack their rubbish neatly outside the gateways to their homes. "In the past Clevedon residents have stockpiled their inorganic rubbish on street corners sending an open invitation to residents living outside the City to dump their inorganic rubbish at Manukau City's residents' expense", says Ms Facenfield.

This year the emphasis is on stacking the rubbish safely and residents can help by not putting out dangerous items such as broken glass.

Three separate collections will be made, including one for tyres, another for items such as metals that can be recycled and one for other inorganic items. Please do not put out trees or organic rubbish.

"To help minimise the amount of time rubbish sits in the streets, we are asking residents not to put their rubbish out until the weekend immediately before collections start in their street," says Ms Facenfield.

All residents will receive a blue leaflet in their letterbox about ten days before the collections start. This will provide more detail about what can be collected.

'Once again I remind residents that the hot message this year is 'stack it safely'. It is not acceptable for people to dump their inorganic anywhere other than on their house frontage. Please contact Council if you see anyone dumping rubbish in a park or reserve." says Ms Facenfield.

For more information about the collections please phone Council's 24x7 call centre on 2625104.
