Poll: Will a price hike stop you from using the Downtown carpark?

Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Do you use the city's Downtown car park daily? Prices are going up.

Auckland Transport has confirmed the capped daily rate at its Downtown car park is going from $24 to $40 from January 21. A spokesman says it is trying to encourage short-term parking there and get people to use public transport into the city centre. How will this effect your daily commute? Would you consider alternative transport? Is this price hike too much?

Please put NFP in your post if it is not for publication.

Poll: Do you ever eat food past its best before date?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

In the US last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yoghurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date.

"I mean, I ate heavy cream I think 10 weeks past date," says Nash, "and then meat sometimes a good month past its date. It didn't smell bad. Rinse it off, good to go."

It was all part of his year-long experiment to test the limits on food that had passed its expiration date.

How are you at recycling?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. Our bad recycling habits have seen 32,300 tonnes of rubbish find its way into recycling bins. This then had to be diverted to landfill, costing us half a million dollars over the last two financial years. How are you at recycling? What rubbish items have you mistakenly thrown in the recycling bin?
