Message from Council re Recycling during COVID-19 Lockdown

Wendy from Waiwhetu

Looks like the message about glass-only recycling is having a hard time getting around. Only 20-30% of households are putting out glass-only crates. So we need your help!

Please share this post with 5-10 people you know in Lower Hutt. Not just on Facebook, txt or call them too. Then ask them to do the same and share the info. It's also a good opportunity to reach out, ask how they're doing.
๐Ÿ—‘โ™ป๏ธ Your rubbish will be collected as normal, but please only put glass in your recycling crate for now โ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ—‘

All other recyclables either reuse or put into the rubbish.

Our contractors are using whatever fleet vehicles are available for glass-only pickup, so you will see trucks collecting that you'd normally see for rubbish only. Be assured, if you put out glass-only in your crate it is being sent for recycling.

๐Ÿฐ Easter: The usual Friday refuse and recycling collections will be collected on Saturday 11 April, instead of Good Friday.

Show neighbours your photography snaps of Wellington!

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Kia ora Wellington, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.

Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.

Winter is here, or coming, depending on what you believe in. But whether you believe it starts on June 1st, with the winter solstice on June 21st, or when the weather packs in, now is a good time to prepare for more rain by making sure the grates over stormwater sumps (drains) in your street and on your property are free of rubbish and leaves.
