Only 20-30% of households are putting out glass-only crates. So we need your help!
Please share this post with 5-10 people you know in Lower Hutt. Not just on Neighbourly, txt or call them too. It's also a good opportunity to reach out, ask how they're doing. Then ask them to do the same.
Your rubbish will be collected as normal, but please only put glass in your recycling crate for now.
All other recyclables either reuse or put into the rubbish.
Our contractors are using whatever fleet vehicles are available for glass-only pickup, so you will see trucks collecting that you'd normally see for rubbish only. Be assured, if you put out glass-only in your crate it is being sent for recycling.
