Curbside rubbish and recycling will be collected one day later than usual following the Auckland Birthday and Waitangi Day public holidays.
This means that if your trash or recycling collection usually falls on Monday, it will be collected on Tuesday. If it is usually collected on Tuesday, it will be collected on Wednesday, and so on for the following two weeks.
Collections will return to normal from Monday, February 14.
Trent Fowles, transitional director of waste and recycling for Hamilton City Council, encourages residents to download the free Antenno mobile app to check on their collection day.
“Antenno is the most accurate way to keep up to date with collection day changes and reminders. It’s easy and free to use. Just download the app from Google Play or the App Store.
You can also use the address search feature on the website to find out which day your bins should be taken out, as well as which items to put in which bin.
“And don’t forget our friendly customer support team is also available to help if you have any questions you can’t answer online,” Fowles said.
Additional recycling can also be dropped off free of charge at the Lincoln Street Waste Transfer Station at 60 Lincoln Street. The recycling center is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays and public holidays. Normal station hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Hamilton Organic Center in Wickham Street, which accepts green waste from members of the public and commercial operators, is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
