Good practice guidelines for waste collection vehicle operators when they are sharing the road with people on bikes and collecting waste on cycle lanes

A WasteMINZ working group has developed draft guidelines to address the potential hazards that people on bikes and cycling infrastructure can present to waste collection vehicle operators when they are carrying out kerbside collection activities and potential hazards that waste collection vehicle operators can present to people on bikes. 

Consultation on these draft guidelines commences on Monday, 23 April 2018 and closes at 5 pm on Monday, 21 May 2018.

If you would like to give feedback please use the feedback form.  Feedback on the guidelines will be accepted by email and post, provided the feedback form is completed. 

The working group will review all feedback received during consultation and incorporate the agreed feedback into the guidelines.  The final version of the guidelines will be available on the WasteMINZ website. 

Please contact Nic Quilty at WasteMINZ if you have any questions.
