Glass can be placed in the green crate

Do not place rubbish bags in your wheelie bin.

We will not be holding anymore rubbish pop up sites as Morrinsville and Matamata Transfer Stations are reopen.

This week is Morrinsville’s recycling week.

Te Aroha and Matamata, your recycling week is next week.

If your recycling is already bagged in your wheelie bin, it will still be collected. But please ensure it’s loose for the next collection.

Next month we are making changes to plastic recycling - you can learn more in the link

Rates invoices will be sent to all ratepayers (who have not already paid the year’s rates in full) from 1 May.

We know the Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on many families in our district, but rates are important to keep our district running smoothly – like ensuring households have safe drinking water, wastewater is taken away, rubbish is collected, cemeteries are available, and Civil Defence are on hand.

You can find information on payment options at www.mpdc.govt.nz/rates/payment-options.

If you are struggling or already know that you aren’t going to be able to pay your rates, please call us on 0800 746 467 to discuss options.

Things are going be a little different this ANZAC Day. While we can’t come together as communities in the literal sense, we can stand together as one nation.
Everyone in our district is invited to participate in the RSA and New Zealand Defence Force Stand at Dawn event, to honour our Returned Service men and women and those who continue to serve.

Head to your mailbox at 6am on 25 April, or wherever you feel most comfortable to do so in your own space to commemorate ANZAC Day.

Mayor Ash Tanner will have a special ANZAC Day Facebook message for our communities at 10am, 25 April.

Please remember lockdown guidelines around physical distancing during this event and don’t burst your bubbles.
