Annual inorganic rubbish collection is Saturday 4 December

This is your chance to rid your home of unwanted furniture, fridges, timber and other inorganic rubbish!

The Mt Victoria Residents Association in conjunction with the Wellington City Council will be collecting on Saturday 4 December from 9am. Simply put the items on the roadside with a donation according to volume and weight of rubbish, eg. $50 for fridges and other large heavy items. All proceeds go to the Mt Victoria Residents Association, and donations are tax deductable – receipts will be provided.

Sorry, collectors can’t accept green waste such as grass clippings, domestic garbage or old computers. For assistance with bulky or heavy items call Kent beforehand on 021 536 873.

All the fun of the fair

The semi-annual Clyde Quay School fair in Elizabeth Street is on again at the end of this month, and if previous years were anything to go by it will be a great event. You can support your local school at the same time as spending a fun couple of hours browsing the stalls and nibbling the food – so keep your diaries free on Sunday 28 November from 10am to 3:30pm.
