Have your rubbish tags vanished before your wheelie bins were collected?

Is this a frequent or rare occurrence in your neighbourhood?

Last year Auckland Council fielded 1996 requests for service related to missing bin tags.

This comprised 538 from the North Shore, 331 from Papakura and 1126 from West Auckland.

The council collected nearly 3.5 million bins using tags last year.

The council saw 23 requests for service related to missing tags last week out of around 60,000 bins collected each week in the user pays area.

A council spokeswoman said the average number of requests had not changed since pre-lockdown and marked a 7% reduction from 2019.

Parul Sood, Auckland Council general manager for waste solutions, said missing bin tags are rare but it does happen.

The council recommends residents put their address and date on the tag and delay tagging their bin until close to collection time, he said.

They should report missing tags to Auckland Council on 09 301 0101 so the incident could be tracked and investigated.
