Do you have rubbish bin problems in your neighbourhood?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Some Papakura residents are so frustrated about their bin tags being swiped off their rubbish bins, they're coming up with some pretty creative ways to deter thieves. The pay-as-you-throw tags were introduced by Auckland Council in Papakura and west Auckland earlier this year and range from between $2.60- $5.50 a bin. To read more, click here.

Although the bin tags aren't city-wide, it got us wondering what other rubbish-bin issues were out there? Has your bin been stolen before? Do people fill your bins with their rubbish and recycling? Have you had lids or wheels broken off them? What extreme measures have you taken to make sure your rubbish gets collected? Let us know in the replies.

Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?
