Hill closure

Remutaka Hill Rd is scheduled to close in both directions between 9pm and 4am until Friday, March 22. NZTA advises people to plan their journeys to avoid travel disruptions during these closures. Access over the hill during the scheduled times requires a booking. People can go to www.nzta.govt.nz/remutaka before the closures to apply for a booking.

Recycling plan

Masterton District Council is reminding people about the standardisation of kerbside recycling. Since February 1 this year, what people can put into their household recycling bins is the same across most of the country. Standardised kerbside recycling is expected to divert an extra 36,000 tonnes of recycling from the landfill every year – estimated at almost 30kg per household. It is also expected to generate more value from recyclable materials. More information about recycling in the Masterton district is at: https://www.mstn.govt.nz/roads-water-and-rubbish/rubbish-recycling-and-waste/recycling

Line closed
