But concerns are being raised that the extra cost could encour- age illegal dumping. One option the Auckland Coun- cil has proposed as it tries to stan- dardise rubbish collection across the supercity is installing elec- tronic tags that would record how many times a bin is emptied. Each time the bin was emptied the tag would record it and an amount would be deducted from a prepaid customer account. Residents of the former Manu- kau city still put out rubbish bags for collection, unlike other parts of Auckland. But some local councillors are worried charging to pick up waste could be a step too far for already struggling families. Howick councillor Dick Quax says waste has always been col- lected as part of the rates in his ward and a move to a user pays system would be a significant change. That's something people need to get their head around, if they want that kind of regime. What we need to make sure is it's no more expensive than it is now.'' He says moving to the wheelie bin system could bring safety improvements. I'm aware of guys running around throwing bags on trucks which can be dangerous and going to bins goes some way to making it safer.'' Councillor Alf Filipaina says extra charges could hit residents in his Manukau ward hard. Some families are scrimping and saving to pay the bills.'' Mr Filipaina says he will listen to what the Manukau community wants when the issue comes before the council again next year. If people can't afford to dispose of rubbish legally, he says it could end up dumped in reserves and cul-de-sacs. Fellow Manukau councillor Arthur Anae agrees careful con- sideration is needed before introducing a user pays policy. When people are looking to save money they look at other alternatives like dumping in the back yard or filling council rub- bish bins.'' Manurewa-Papakura Council- lor John Walker is worried solo parents and pensioners won't be able to move the heavy bins. Residents could choose the size of their bin depending on how much waste the household produces. And they may have to find room for two other bins -- one for recycling and one for organic waste, which would likely be funded by rates or other sources. Council infrastructure and environment manager John Dragicevich says the council wants to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and treat more waste as a resource. Public submissions can be made online, libraries and local board offices from November 17 until January 31.
