Rubbish and recycling during holidays


Hamilton’s kerbside rubbish and recycling will be collected one day later following public holidays over the Christmas season and into the new year.


With Christmas Day falling on a Monday, the usual Monday collection will be collected on Tuesday 26 December, Tuesday’s collection will be on Wednesday and so on.


If you usually have a Friday collection it will be collected on the Saturday. The same applies following New Year’s Day, Auckland Anniversary Day (Monday 29 January) and Waitangi Day (Tuesday 6 February) when collections will be one day later than usual in that week.


The refuse transfer station at 60 Lincoln Street will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. On Sundays and other public holidays it is open between 9am and 4pm. Normal Monday to Saturday hours are 7.30am to 4.30pm.


Bins or Bags


Last year the Council asked Hamilton residents what changes they think should be made to the kerbside rubbish and recycling service. Your feedback has informed the choices we’re currently making on your kerbside collection service and a decision will be made early next year (2018).
