Changes to kerbside rubbish - green waste

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

At the moment, Wellingtonians put around 130 tonnes of green waste from their gardens in their kerbside rubbish each week which breaks down in the landfill, producing methane gas - a big contributor to climate change.

As part of our new waste bylaw, yellow rubbish bags cannot contain more than 10% green waste.

But don’t worry! When you bring your green waste to the Southern Landfill it will be turned into Capital Compost – and it only costs $5 to dispose of up to 85kg!

For more information about the bylaw and alternative ways to deal with your green waste, visit:

Mary Lambert, Lyric Soprano, began singing lessons with Geoffrey Delautour. He would take her with others to sing at senior citizens gatherings and retirement homes - which she is still doing! Later she studied under Heather Taylor and Emily Mair and sang with Bel Canto and in Gilbert and Sullivan Musicals and now sings with the Wadestown Singers.

Open House is is a monthly gathering for over 60s. It meets every 4th Thursday in the Wadestown Presbyterian Church hall which is on Hanover Street (just off Wadestown Road).
