Level 3 in Hamilton: Food scraps and glass to be picked up, but playgrounds and skate parks still off limits

There will be freedom to build and, soon, freedom from stinky food scraps when Hamilton heads to level 3 from Wednesday.

However, all council facilities – including playgrounds – will remain closed to the public.

Hamilton City Council staff have been working to determine just what services are allowable when the alert level change kicks in at midnight on Tuesday.

Construction can resume, and so too can visits from council building inspectors – as long as all parties adhere to strict social distancing rules.Glass recycling and food scraps collections will be back on, meaning all rubbish and recycling will be picked up from the kerbs of the city streets. The Lincoln Street Resource Recovery Centre and Hamilton Organics will also reopen – albeit at reduced capacity – for rubbish, recycling and greenwaste drop-offs.

Like the playgrounds, all the city’s skate parks, basketball courts and park toilets and car parks will remain closed.

It’s a situation that many Hamiltonians are still failing to understand. Since the lockdown began, council staff have been fielding daily reports of residents flouting the rules and congregating at the city’s playgrounds and skate bowls.

All the city’s libraries, Waikato Museum, Hamilton Zoo, Waterworld and the Gallagher Aquatic Centre, and the themed gardens, playground, cafe, and Information Centre at Hamilton Gardens will all stay off limits.

Great team, easy to deal with and the Cooper Tires they put on have been excellent
And yet another amazing experience and outstanding service from the team at Tyre Tracks. They went above and beyond to get the vehicle driving perfect, it feels like a completely different vehicle. A massive thanks to Mat, Greg, Jason and the team!!!

Went in for a wheel alignment on my project Land Rover this morning. Fast, friendly and great service! The alignment is spot on and if the certifier is unhappy with it they've offered to adjust the alignment, free of charge. I would recommend them.

I just had a wheel alignment done and two new tyres. Everyone was super nice and the service was speedy. One of the guys even came in and put the heater on for my baby. I'll definitely recommend and return :-) Thanks guys

I have found dealing with Matt and his team at Tyre Tracks very professional everytime I have required their service. It's easy to recommend Tyre Tracks to anyone wanting great tyres and a first class service.. Cheers, from a very happy customer.
