Recycling Rubbish Piling Up In Kāpiti

Guy Burns, Raumati/Paraparaumu Community Board member is annoyed and disappointed at how the Kāpiti recycling waste provider Envirowaste has taken away resident’s recycling bins without leaving any replacements.

“Locals have been contacting me thinking the Council is responsible for taking the bins, not realising Envirowaste manages the recycling process.

“Recycling bins have been removed without any replacement bins, now people’s glass, plastic and newspapers are now piling up.

“My own bin has been taken over four weeks ago, without any communication, and I’ve made over seven phone calls trying to get a new one delivered.

“I still don’t have a bin and have been forced to start driving to the tip on a regular basis to dispose of my recycling rubbishhardly a sustainable solution.

“KCDC need to start putting pressure on Envirowaste and look at cancelling their licence to collect waste in Kāpiti,” says Mr Burns.
