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.

Angela Quigan Reporter from Stuff

Put out that cigarette, smokers!

Smoking outside hundreds of cafes, restaurants and bars has been snubbed out by Auckland Council.

The council is making more than 800 restaurants, cafes and bars with outdoor dining smokefree as part of new licensing rules.

To read more click here.

What do you think of the ban? Do smokers ruin your dining experience? Or do you enjoy a cigarette with a couple of after work drinks? How will this affect you? (Please add "NFP/not for print" if you do not want your comments used on Stuff)
