Meri Kirihimete Pōneke

Wow, what a year we've had. 2020 has thrown a lot at all of us – it's certainly been a year full of challenges and change.

If you're like many of us here at Wellington City Council, you'll be ready for a well-earned break.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

And speaking of which, check out our jam-packed Summer City programme which kicks off this New Year’s Eve.

Some of our facilities and services have reduced opening hours during the holiday period.   

For all of that information and more – including what you need to know about rubbish and recycling collections – please visit our dedicated holiday hours page.

Over the break, our social media channels will be monitored, but not as much as usual. For any urgent enquiries you can reach us 24/7 on 04 499 4444. 

And if you're looking for something fun and festive to do on Christmas Day, check out our Festive Five for some ideas.

Wellington, have a fantastic Christmas – Meri Kirihimete Pōneke!
