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.

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.
