Wool and wool-mix carpet can be disposed of at discounted rates.
The carpet must be separated from other waste to qualify for the discount.
Wool and wool-mix carpets can be recycled, enabling Council to offer a reduced rate of disposal of $105 per tonne. The discounted rate is only available at the EcoDepot at Metro Place, Bromley.
Fully synthetic carpet cannot be recycled and must be disposed of with the general refuse. Disposal will cost the normal refuse rate of $210 per tonne.
Residents are reminded they should retain receipts for disposing of earthquake-related refuse as they may be able to claim these costs for insurance purposes.
