Rubbish and Recycling


Over the coming days and weeks, we’ll be scaling up our welfare efforts to make sure we’re doing all we can do to keep our communities safe.

Our focus remains on meeting the needs of our communities. We all need to continue to support everyone and especially our elderly and vulnerable people. Keep yourselves safe, look after each other and keep an eye on your neighbours.

We will update Council operations and activities here or follow us on Facebook.

Cancelled Events 

No public ANZAC events to be held in 2020

The Returned and Services Association (RSA) has made the decision to cancel any public Anzac Day events. Taking this into consideration, and the mass gathering restrictions in place in response to COVID-19, Anzac Day civic services at Ngatea War Memorial Hall, Paeroa War Memorial Hall and Waihi Memorial Hall have been cancelled. The unveiling of the Memorial Wall at Ngatea, planned for 25 April, has also been postponed.
