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!

We can now use sprinklers and irrigations systems to water our gardens! 🌼🌻
This is because watering restrictions have now been eased for Metropolitan Wellington and South Wairarapa 👏
“Community action in limiting water use, paired with the hot summer peak use period coming to an end, means we are confident about removing watering restrictions across the region” says Laurence Edwards, Chief Advisor Drinking Water.
Please continue to be mindful of water use as the rivers, lakes and aquifers recover. 💧
Please remember that alternate day, odds-evens watering still applies in Upper Hutt, and South Wairarapa as it does all year round.
