Media Release: Hauraki District Council
From next week, Hauraki District Council rubbish will be collected fortnightly on your normal recycling week
During these extraordinary circumstances, everything (recycling included) will be sent to landfill to protect the health and wellbeing of our communities, staff and contractors
Please put your rubbish and recycling (except glass) in an official yellow council bag inside your big black and yellow wheelie bin, so staff do not have to touch it.
If your bag is not in your wheelie bin, it won’t be picked up.
Glass recycling bins will not be emptied due to the risk of spreading the virus
If anyone in your household is sick, please double bag your rubbish and recycling, but only the outside bag needs to be an official bag
Hauraki District Council thanks you for your understanding and patience in these challenging times
