Final call for feedback on solid waste bylaw

17:00, Aug 28 2012

Submissions on disposing of rubbish are coming to an end with Auckland Council doing a final call for feedback.

The city-wide solid waste bylaw is open for discussion at the moment with public submissions accepted until September 3.

The plans from each of the seven former councils end on October 31 and will be replaced with a single document to standardise collections for the region.

"The immediate change felt by Aucklanders will be minimal," regulatory and bylaws committee chairman councillor Des Morrison says.

"However, some proposed changes of public interest are the management of unaddressed mail, abandoned shopping trolleys and disposal of waste in other people's bins."

The council is keen to hear from all residents, as well as the waste industry and business operators.

The proposed bylaw will help the council achieve outcomes of its waste management and minimisation plan,

Hard copies of the document are also available at libraries and council offices around Auckland.
