New kerbside recycling service starts 9 September

We’re really looking forward to the new kerbside wheelie bin recycling service which is set to begin the week commencing 9 September. If you’re eligible for the service you should by now have received your recycling wheelie bin, with a bright yellow lid, along with an information booklet. If not, you will receive it soon.

The wheelie bin is to be used for non-glass recyclables and the old green and maroon crates for glass-only recycling. The crates and the wheelie bins will be emptied on alternating weeks (termed Week 1 and Week 2). 

Everyone in South Wairarapa puts their recycling wheelie bin out on Week 1, and their crates out on Week 2. While it’s a little bit confusing, the new recycling pick-up service actually begins on Week 2, according to the calendar included in the information booklet.

The calendar and all the information you need about the new service is also available at
