Rubbish and recycling is changing next year.

The team from Hutt City Council

A new weekly kerbside rubbish and fortnightly recycling service, paid for through rates, will be in place from 1 July 2021.

How will it work?

Recycling - For recycling, you will get a 240-litre wheelie bin for mixed recycling, and a 45-litre crate for glass both collected fortnightly.

Rubbish - For rubbish you will get to choose from three options:

• A 120-litre bin collected weekly (default option)
• An 80-litre bin collected weekly
• A 240-litre bin collected weekly

Green waste - You’ll also get to choose whether you want a 240L green waste bin, collected every four weeks.

What’s next?

We’ll be in contact with you later this year about bin options.

If you have a contract for your current rubbish collection, make sure you cancel it before 1 July 2021.

If you are a landlord you may wish to get in touch with your tenants soon about these changes.

More information:

We invite you to sign up to receive information as we begin to roll-out the new system.

Way Back Wednesday

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hey Neighbourly folk, can you work out who this is and where the picture was taken. The only hint I will give is that it was 1909.

Beware...some adorable ghosts may be haunting your streets.

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Halloween can be a fun way to connect with your community. But naturally not all homes in New Zealand will get involved.
If your house is open to trick or treaters this weekend, or if you know of some popular, local streets for trick or treating, please share these below.
