Rubbish as usual

As reported on page 2, SH2 High St in Carterton will be open to traffic in both directions this weekend as NZTA heads into the second week of its road rehabilitation project. Despite these ongoing roadworks, Carterton District Council is emphasising that rubbish and recycling collection will continue as usual on High St North and residents are asked to continue to follow the usual collection calendar. Collectors will work with traffic management to ensure every bin or crate left out is emptied and each council bag removed.
