What you need to know from us on COVID-19

The team from Hutt City Council

We are doing all we can to support local people and businesses through this period. We know it will have a significant social and economic impact across the community

There are small and practical things we are doing right now to help ease the burden. We’ve removed charges for parking, suspending library fines, and we’re also establishing a $100,000 community resilience fund to support groups and initiatives.

The most important priority for us right now is keeping our people safe, and maintaining essential services - like waste collection, our roading network etc.

If you have any questions about work Council is doing, or our services during the lockdown period - visit our website or call us on 04 570 6666.

Rubbish and recycling
Rubbish collection continues as normal. You can buy council rubbish bags from supermarkets or dairies or arrange for a wheelie bin for your rubbish through a private company.

Glass only in recycling crates. All other recyclables either reuse or put into the rubbish.
Community recycling stations are closed.

Rates:
If you’re struggling to pay your rates due to COVID-19, contact us.
Call 04 570 6666 or email rates@huttcity.govt.nz
If you make a payment arrangement with us no penalties will be applied.

We’re here to help you get through.

Facilities:
During Level 4 almost all Council facilities are closed.
This includes all indoor facilities such as libraries, hubs, pools, gyms, and our admin building on Laings Rd.
It also includes outdoor facilities such as playgrounds and artesian water taps where there is risk of infection through shared equipment. The Riverbank car park is closed due to illegal rubbish dumping.

Cemeteries remain open at this stage for visitation, but please stick to the 2m distancing rule.
