Please see the following communication in relation to the announcement made by the NZ Government to enter into Alert Level 2 status.

The conditions and restrictions differ slightly, due mainly to the fact that previously, the centre was moving from a Level 4 status down to level 3, then 2, and the community were required to collect for a lengthy period of time during complete lockdown / closure of the centre. This created the pandemic recycling that we worked and witnessed.

On this occasion, we are entering Alert Level 2 status from a standard operational practice position, and will not create the same heavy traffic volumes that we experienced two months ago.

Therefore, the following applies from 12 Midday Wednesday 12 August 2020:

  • The WRRC will remain open for business as usual, including access to both the front and rear of the centre;
  • The front of the centre will continue to remain open and accessible to the public 24/7;
  • There are no current restrictions imposed to manage and monitor vehicle numbers and the number of people who can recycle per vehicle, provided they respect the conditions of 2m social distancing;
  • Staff will be required to wear protective masks and gloves for the duration of this Alert Level 2 status;

The only restriction imposed at this point in time is for ALL PERSONS to observe the 2m Social Distancing policy, which we have posted new signage this morning.

We will obviously continue to monitor the situation as things evolve and keep everyone in touch as and when potential changes occur.
