SWS Newsletter Newsletter

In May 2003, SWS launched the Wellington Solid Waste News. The first full colour issue was distributed in March 2009. The Spring 2012 newsletter provided programme and event information in an updated look. Our newsletter is now delivered as an over-wrap in the Wellington Advertiser and is also available online.
