So how much is that costing us as ratepayers. How much does each bin cost? What effect does this have on the environment? with MORE plastic!!!

So what are the boundary lines (area) for this bin to go to properties i.e. who gets it and who doesn't.

Sadly when you live in the country you dont get stuff like this or even rural mail

What do we do with the old boxes?

Hallelujah! !!!

About time this happens 😀

I hope the wheelie bins will stop the fly tippers dropping their rubbish on our kerbside.

Is the surface between Carterton and Wiltons Road going to be sorted. Heading north on a sunny day around 8.30 the reflection off the tar is blinding, and as for wet nights it is the same problem with headlights.... and you cant even see the road markings in the wet

Threshold sign ?

Good luck sleeping!!!

Thanks all for your feedback, this will be passed on to our roading team in the morning

Been like this for a couple of weeks, how different now?

Stellar road management with only one stop-go operater as well. Pretty bloody slack, to be honest.

Why not widen it a bit while you are on the job

Would have been nice to know about this before it started. Bit late letting us know now. Speed limit is a bit dodgy too - it's sometimes 30k then next time it's 70k even with the restricted width.
