SilverStream Landfill increases in July

Dumping material at Silverstream Landfill will be dearer from 1 July.

The Hutt Valleys 2 city councils are considering lifting fees per tonne from $78 to $84, which is likely to affect rubbish company charges and trickle down to Hutt residents in costs of material taken to landfill.

Also on top of this a new $10 per tone waste minimisation levy mandated by Parliament will also come into effect on the 1st July, but half of that money will come back to the city to fund waste minimisation / recycling activities
