Rubbish and recycling delays

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Due to a nationwide driver shortage, we’re still seeing some delays with our rubbish and recycling collections.

If rubbish or recycling has not been collected on your street on your normal collection day, please leave it out and it will be picked up the next day

Please note collections now start at 7am, so your rubbish and recycling may be picked up earlier than usual. Make sure you put everything out before 7am on the day of collection, or after 7pm the night before.

Thank you for your patience Pōneke 💛

2022 Wairarapa Wines Harvest festival - on sale now

The Team from Destination Wairarapa

For the first time Wairarapa Wines Harvest Festival will be held on TWO DAYS - Friday 25 and Saturday 26 February 2022.
Tickets are now on sale and you'll be able to book your bus transport too.
At Harvest, vineyards pair up with regional restaurants and produce outstanding local festival dishes. You can sample wines from not only the larger, better known Wairarapa wineries but also from some of the smaller boutique wineries in the region. You'll even get the opportunity to meet the wine makers from the vineyards involved. Festival goers can relax under the old trees listening to live music.

The festival is held at a beautiful, sheltered riverside setting locally known as ‘The Cliffs' on the banks of the Ruamahunga River at the end of Dakins Road in rural Wairarapa, just 10 minutes drive from both Masterton and Carterton. Festival goers can come via train from Wellington and take a shuttle buses to get to the festival - it's all part of a great day. Tickets are here: outwww.iticket.co.nz...

You can embrace today. Without worrying about the lawns, or the rates. It’s another example of how we’re pioneering retirement living.
