Minimising Hamilton’s Waste, what’s your vision?


We all generate waste through our daily activities, at home, when we are at work and when we are out and about. Hamilton City Council is responsible for promoting effective and efficient waste management and waste reduction practices for the city. How the Council determines this management and these practices depend on you! We should all have a say in what happens to our rubbish and recycling and the Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (Waste Plan) is the best place to have your input.

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).
