Re:Inorganic Collection

Vivienne from Pakuranga Heights

Auckland City Council has informed us that due to Covid-19, our inorganic collection scheduled, booked and paid (via rates) due to happen in September 2020 has now been postponed to February 2021.

We contacted ACC and posed the question: ‘does this mean we will get 2 inorganic collections in 2021?”. Response: “don’t know, wait and see”. Before becoming a Super City, we use to have inorganic every six months and our rates were much lower. Since the amalgamation our rates keep increasing and we only have one inorganic per annum and we even missed out totally some years. ACC really know how to stuff you around, no transparency or honesty. You just have to suck it up and continue paying. Has anybody else been informed about this postponement?

Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print.
