Residents of the Big Stone and Taieri Mouth Rd area will have
kerbside recycling from July 1.
The Dunedin City Council infrastructure services committee
approved the extension of the Brighton kerbside collection
service at its meeting on Monday, afterrequests from
residents of the area.

The extra costs of expanding the service would be covered by
rates from those properties.
Residents will receive a 240-litre wheelie bin for plastics,
paper and metal cans and a blue plastic bin for glass bottles
and jars and be charged an extra $64 a year on their rates
for the weekly service, from July 1.
