Council rubbish bags
Upper Hutt City Council rubbish bags are coloured green and can be purchased from local supermarkets and dairies.
This collection service is funded by a ‘user pays’ system - this means that the more you recycle, the less you need to pay.
Our waste contractor, Waste Management, supplies Council rubbish bags at an agreed wholesale price to the retailers (supermarkets and dairies) but we do not control the prices set by the stores, so the price you pay can vary from store to store.
If you are using Council rubbish bags, public holidays do not affect collection except for Good Friday, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
- The collection that would normally take place on Good Friday will take place the next day on Saturday.
- If your collection falls on Christmas or New Year's Day, collection will take place the Saturday prior (23rd & 30th December)
If you use a private wheelie bin collection provider, contact your provider for more detailed information about their public holiday collection service.
Council rubbish bag collection is managed by Waste Management.
Please ensure rubbish bags are placed kerbside by 7 am.
Below is a general guide to collection days for Council's rubbish bag collection. Please note that this is a general guide only with some suburbs, such as Elderslea, Trentham and the Central Business District (CBD) being split into two areas and rubbish is collected over two days.
For more information about collection days, or our the rubbish bag collection service, contact Waste Management directly. You can phone them on (04) 568 3550 or send them a message. Alternatively, contact Council to find out the rubbish collection day for your street.
