Turangi RTS Green waste disposal area. I have complained a few times on this same issue and now have to do it again. I have visited the Turangi RTS area a number of times dumping leaves from Council trees over the past weeks. I dread going there, finding the area a boggy mess, and getting mud all over my car and boots trying to dump there. The area is disgusting. Council staff overseeing the management of this contract must take the responsibility - or is this what your intended outcome is? Every year winter comes. Every year, for the last 3 years, the area is not prepared for the influx of green waste and leaves being dumped over Autumn. It has poor drainage. Every year the same - TDC say "we will speak to the contractor" but still a substandard outcome. We know winter comes this time of the year; we know it rains and we know that water does not run off an area shaped to contain and puddle water. And yet we find the area is now such that you cannot avoid the mud and slush and puddles and it has restricted area making it difficult to manoeuvre a car and trailer on it clear of the pools of water and slush. I hate having to complain but it seems TDC does little unless a complaint is received. Please cleanup the RTS green waste area. Fill in and build up the area so vehicles have a good sized area to move on; build it of good compacted pumice; shape it so it is elevated above the greenwaste dump area so that runoff is away from the vehicle area and drainage from the green waste is not onto the pad. If TDC staff don't know what to do, then employ a contactor who does. For years Kernohan Contractors achieved this for TDC. We know it can be done because it used to be done.
