The first Selwyn houses to get their RFID electronic bin tags will start receiving information on the tagging process from Monday 23 September.

The stocktake and tagging of the district’s 51,000 bins is expected to take six to eight months to complete. It will see addresses checked for all bins and an RFID tag fitted to each bin.

The tag is automatically scanned each time the bin is collected. It will allow the Council to maintain accurate records of the bins at each property, allowing for a more efficient service and to ensure fair charging for all.

Flyers will be sent to the first houses next week and text alerts the day before the tagging crew is in your area. A small round yellow sticker will be applied to the side of each bin once the tag has been fitted. For more information please visit our stocktake page
