Residents can drop off everything from paint, stains and varnishes, petrol, oil and gas cylinders to fluor- escent bulbs and garden chemicals. Upper Hutt City Council's consent engineer team leader Jeff Haste says both Hutt Valley councils are com- mitted to more sustainable cities. This annual collection goes a long way to getting rid of unwanted haz- ardous materials that can potentially harm your health or the environ- ment. Last year we collected around 20 tonnes of hazardous waste that was recycled or disposed of safely to avoid contaminating landfills and harming our health.'' Residents often call up to find out what to do with the more energy efficient compact florescent light bulbs, this is your chance to have them safely recycled for free,'' says Upper Hutt City Council sustain- ability officer, Roderick Boys. The Upper Hutt collection will be at the Upper Hutt Rural Fire Depot in Park St from 10am till 2pm. There will be a similar collection in Lower Hutt at the riverbank car park on Sunday, August 21, same hours. The hazardous waste collection is for household waste only. Residents can bring in paint, stains and varnishes, paint stripper, petrol and oil, thinners and degreasers, garden and cleaning chemicals, gas cylinders, fluorescent bulbs, batteries and pool chemicals. No electronics or appliances will be accepted. Commercial waste will not be accepted. For more information on recycling or disposal options residents can contact either Hutt City Council on 570 6666 or huttcity.govt.nz/rubbish, or Upper Hutt City Council on 527 2169 or upperhuttcity.com/ refuse-recycle Grow to be great parents Parenting from six weeks to a year is the subject of a free upcoming course from Upper Hutt Plunket.
