There will be no changes to kerbside collections due to Matariki (Friday 28 June). Pop your bins out as usual by 7am on your normal collection day.


Events can generate a lot of waste and recycling in a short period of time. A good event waste minimisation plan is a great way to reduce the waste generated in the first place and to maximise the diversion from landfill.

Beyond the Bin, a Tauranga company, received funding from the Ministry for the Environment to develop a series of videos to help event organisers learn more about event waste minimisation. The videos can be viewed on the Beyond the Bin website.

All events in Hamilton must develop a waste management plan. Have a look at our Event Waste Management Guide for some handy tips and suggestions.

If you are holding an event in Hamilton check to see if you need a permit on the Hamilton City Council website.
