WasteNet Southland and Southland disAbility Enterprises are pleased to announce recycling processing services will restart on Monday, May 11.

Due to COVID-19, manual recycling processing services were not able to be safely conducted at Alert Level 4, resulting in recycling being disposed to landfill.

Southland disAbility Enterprises General Manager Hamish McMurdo says the team has worked hard to ensure recycling can be safely sorted at Alert Level 3.

“We know how important it is to our residents that we resume recycling and our team is excited to get back to work processing Southland’s recycling.

“We have been busy writing procedures and organising our business to ensure physical distancing is maintained at all times. We have also added extra PPE and the regular sanitising of machinery to assist in keeping our team safe.”

The recycling drive through facility and business processing remains closed.

“If you are a regular user of the Invercargill recycling drop-off please stockpile clean recyclables until we are in a position to reopen the drop-off area.”

In light of the recycling service reopening, residents need to make sure any rubbish is removed from their Council yellow recycling bin before it is collected.
