• Martinborough Transfer Station is open for all services, with extended hours for this first week, in anticipation of high demand. Opening hours will be from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Tuesday 28 April through to Sunday 3 May. Hours will return to normal the following week (beginning 4 May).
For the safety of the transfer station staff, contactless payment is being implemented. Payment by PIN entry is acceptable for now. Paywave will be the only acceptable way of paying, once this is in place. Cash payments will not be accepted.
Rural residents dropping off Council rubbish bags only can do so for no extra charge on entry.
• Featherston and Greytown Recycling Centres are open with extended hours in anticipation of the backlog. Both centres will be open for recycling and greenwaste Tuesday 28 April through to Friday 1 May from 11:00am to 3:30pm. Opening days and times will return to normal the following week (beginning 4 May).
Please be patient and stay in your vehicles if there are queues. In Level 3, people are still advised to limit unnecessary travel. Where possible, please combine your trip to the transfer station with other essential travel.
Also, a reminder that urban kerbside rubbish and recycling collections this week are one day later due to the Anzac Public Holiday that was on Monday.

The Team at South Wairarapa
With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?
Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?
