Join us at the Mt Vic Hub on Elizabeth Street to find out more about the improvements to biking, busing and walking happening in your community.

When: Thursday 19 May - 3pm to 5.30pm

Pop by for a chance to ask any questions about the installation and the changes that are happening, check out the routes, the materials being used and find out how you can provide feedback and help us improve the new lanes once they’re in.

Wellingtonians want the Council to take urgent climate action, and making changes like this so more people of all ages and abilities can get about in low carbon ways is one of the most important things we can do to set the city up for the future.

We are happy to confirm that our contractors are feeling better and glass collections will start again on Monday 18 April.

We know there will be a bit of a backlog, but we ask that you please only put your glass out in official Council crates, and put it out in stages so that we don't overwhelm the processing plant.

You can still drop your glass off for free at the Recycling Centre at the Southern Landfill.

Co-mingled recycling in bags and wheelie bins is still being collected and recycled as normal.

Thank you all for your patience, kindness and empathy during this time. It is greatly appreciated by us and our contractors.
