COVID-19 delays to recycling

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Unfortunately, 50% of our waste contractors are currently unwell with COVID-19 or other seasonal bugs, which means there will be significant delays to kerbside waste collections.

Kerbside rubbish and co-mingle recycling (wheelie bins and bags) are being prioritised, but there may be some delays. If yours is missed, please leave it out overnight for collection the next day.
Glass collections will be put on hold from Monday 27 June for an estimated two weeks.

You can still drop your glass items off for free at the Recycling Centre at the Southern Landfill or stockpile clean items until collections restart.

We wish our contractors a speedy recovery.

Thank you all for your patience 🙏

Sharon from Karori

Foxtail Events are bringing Wellington not one, but two fabulous markets this weekend!

For all the cute creeps out there, head along to Thistle Hall Community Venue from 9.30am - 2.30pm and check out the Creepy Cute Market!

And, for those that wish to stroll among the roses and enjoy the sunshine, then pop on over to the Wellington Botanic Garden Makers Market at the Lady Norwood Rose Garden from 9am - 2pm.

Both these markets will have a great selection of stunning products created and designed by our very own local artists and crafters of Wellington!

What would The School of Life teach?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The National Party introduced their policy called 'teaching the basics brilliantly' last year regarding changing school curriculums. They are referring to reading, writing and maths.

However, some people believe school should actually be more practical, teaching kids to change tyres and balance their finances. Thinking about all the skills that have benefited you over the years, tell us what would be taught at your School of Life?

Type 'Not For Print' if you wish your comments to be excluded from the Conversations column of your local paper.
