Council mulls waste disposal plans for Bluff

18:30, Nov 06 2012

The Invercargill City Council is looking at several initiatives to help clean up waste in Bluff.

After a suggestion at the Bluff Community Board's September meeting, the council had proposed three 360-litre bins be placed at the transfer station for residential recycling, the city council's drainage and solid waste manager, Malcolm Loan, told the board this week.

The recycling bins would be free to use and were for people who needed to recycle items between kerbside collections or who missed the collection on recycling day, he said.

The council was also considering upgrading the Bluff Transfer Station, including Eftpos facilities, a hazardous waste drop-off and storage area, and a shed for items that were not wanted by second-hand shops but still had a use.
