Council first installed the rates-funded Recycling Drop-off Station to provide households with an alternative means to recycle. This will help conserve our landfill space, preserve our natural resources, and control rising waste disposal costs—a great outcome for our community.
Upper Hutt City Council provides a user-pays kerbside recycling collection service through its contractor – Waste Management Ltd. Waste Management Ltd provide receptacles and kerbside collection for household recyclables. Collection calendars are provided by Waste Management.
Contact Waste Management directly to find out what they collect and for all other general enquiries, such as:
- collection calendars
- the areas of the city they cover
- what they recycle
- the cost of their service, and
- days they collect on
- non collection
All enquiries and complaints should be directed to the supplier who you have contracted to provide your kerbside recycling collection service.
Residents may choose to use an alternative ‘private’ supplier such as Low Cost Bins. Low Cost Bins also provide a receptacles and kerbside collection for household recyclables.
For information about recycling collection on statutory holidays, please contact your recycling service provider.
