Horowhenua District Council website advises us about
Rubbish and Recycling Services in Alert Level 3. Our next collection will be Monday 11 May 2020:
All kerbside rubbish collections will continue. Contractors will resume kerbside recycling collection from Monday 4 May. This will continue to follow the normal schedule …
the service started again on 04 May but our next collection date is 11 May.
Horowhenua District Council’s Community Connection is published on the first Wednesday of each month and distributed to households throughout the district as an insert in the Horowhenua Chronicle newspaper.
