Am I allowed to put stickers on my wheelie bin?

Christchurch City Council has no objections to the marketing of bin decorations for the Christchurch City Council kerbside collection wheelie bins.  This is on the understanding that "decorations shall not cover serial numbers or other markings which identify the bins as part of the CCC kerbside collection system". (Waste Management Plan, City Water & Waste).  It is advisable to check with your own local council regarding any restrictions.

Who owns the bins in Christchurch?

The three Christchurch City Council bins are the property of Transpacific Industries Ltd and belong to the property. They do not belong to the owner or the dweller of the house and as such must remain at the property if the residents choose to move elsewhere. Please take care of the bins as any damage done to them may result in replacement costs being met by the property owner.
 
The designer Wheeliekiwi stickers may need to be taken off the wheeliebins when residents leave, as the bins may need to be relocated elsewhere.
