Kerbside rubbish and recycling services in the Hutt are getting a massive shake-up.

From 1 July 2021, all Lower Hutt households will receive one wheelie bin for rubbish, another wheelie bin for mixed recycling, as well as a crate for glass. Households will also be able to opt-in to receive a green waste bin.

By rolling out the new system to all ratepayers everyone in our community will now have easy and affordable access to kerbside rubbish and recycling services says Council’s Chief Executive Jo Miller.

“This is the single biggest change Council has made to improving sanitation, and reducing the amount of rubbish around our city. The decision by Council will have a significant and positive impact on our environment. An effective recycling system will cost the city less over time as landfill charges increase.”
