Auckland council considers fortnightly bin collection

From Morning Report, 7:23 am on 1 December 2023

Auckland Council is drafting a plan to change its rubbish collection from a weekly to fortnightly service.

The goal is to reduce waste by incentivising residents to make use of the kerbside food scrap collection.

But Manurewa-Papakura councillor Daniel Newman says food waste collection should be an addition - not an alternative - to weekly rubbish collection.

Newman spoke to Corin Dann.
