E-mail Print PDF

To allow increased site storage at the recycling station please wash and squash plastics.

By squashing plastics more plastics can be stores on site. Washing removes material that would become putrid or attract wasps.

This is a cost saving measure that reduces the number of journeys that the plastic collector truck needs to make to the Taihape Waste Transfer Station.

Local Approved Products Policy 2014

E-mail Print PDF

The Psychoactive Substances Act 2013 became operative in July 2013 and established a regulatory framework for the legal sale of licensed products (“legal highs”). As part of this legislation territorial authorities are able to implement a Local Approved Products Policy.  The legislation does not permit Council’s policy to ban the sale of products from within the District. However, it does allow Council to restrict where the sale of products may take place. This includes identifying “sensitive sites” and specifying a minimum separation distance between sensitive sites and retail premises, and between two retail premises.
