QUEENSTOWN LAKES DISTRICT COUNCIL REVISED RUBBISH BIN
QLDC are delivering new wheelie bins to residential properties across the district.
It seems many properties in Glenorchy & Kinloch have not yet received the bins for the new rubbish and recycling collection service set to start on 1 July 2019. The bin roll-out started on 26 March with Kingston and Glenorchy, and should be finished district wide about mid-June. Everyone who currently gets kerbside rubbish and recycling should receive the new bins (the whole Queenstown Lakes district from Makarora to Kingston).
What to do if your bins have not arrived?
If you didn’t get any bins when all your neighbours got theirs, call QLDC on 03 441 0499 or 03 443 0024.
Use the RFS/fix it box on the QLDC website to register missing bins.

UPDATE FROM AURORA ENERGY REGARDING POWER OUTAGE
Wednesday night’s power outage in Glenorchy was caused by a car hitting a pole in Bob’s Cove. The power stayed on after being hit but the pole had to be changed immediately for safety reasons. The crew needed 2-3 hrs to change the pole. We made the decision to focus on changing the damaged pole rather than splitting up the line crews to do switching to allow the generator to run. For us, this reinforces the discussion we had at the community meeting regarding automating several switches in the Glenorchy area and remote controlling the generator. We look forward to continuing to work with the Glenorchy Community.
