Recycling update

The Team from Hamilton City Council

Recycling collections have stopped due to safety concerns over COVID-19 being spread to our staff sorting recyclables by hand. Our team have been kindly emptying your crates to keep our streets safe and tidy as some people may not have heard about our changes yet.

From Wednesday (1 April 2020), recycling crates put out for collection won’t be emptied. Rubbish bags will be collected as normal. Paper and cardboard will still be collected but sent to landfill.

0800 helpline set up for people struggling to get food

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours,
Waikato people struggling to get food and other necessities during lockdown now have a number to call.

Freephone 0800 800 405 was set up by the Waikato Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group for people struggling to get food, groceries, medication or other household goods and services.

The group is not yet sure how big the need is, and say the 0800 number doesn't replace other Government helplines.
