Update to rubbish and recycling

Grace from Hutt City Council

Rubbish collection is an essential service in an emergency situation.

We have been advised that recycling is non-essential which means the recycling facility that receives our city’s recycling material has closed. We have been able to make arrangements for a glass recycler to take glass only.

Rubbish collection is an essential service in an emergency situation.

We have been advised that recycling is non-essential which means the recycling facility that receives our city’s recycling material has closed. We have been able to make arrangements for a glass recycler to take glass only.

What this means for you and us

Be responsible. Please don’t dump your rubbish and recycling. Kerbside rubbish collection is continuing. You can buy bags at the supermarket or contact a commercial company for a private wheelie bin service.

If you continue to use the recycling crates please only use these for glass. Please do not put anything else in your recycling crate – this only makes it harder for the collection people. Please note we cannot advise when our full recycling service will restart.

Our community recycling stations will close effective 5pm today as they cannot take all recyclables. To discourage illegal dumping the bins will start to be removed from tomorrow. The sites will be monitored.

The Seaview recycling station is privately owned and is now closed to the public. Account holders only (and these are mostly businesses) can continue to use the Seaview station.

We need Vets in critical services

George from Naenae

Our "fur children" count too! I dont see Vets anywhere on the essential services list. Am aware that some of them and their equipment might be repurposed (needs must) but what happens if a pet is sick/injured? Can at least one vet in an area stay open for pets only?
