Volunteer Moth Weed Exterminators - Community Environment Services Groups

Lena from Half Moon Bay

I had a Volunteer from SMART Moth Weed Community Group door knock, offering to Kill these wild weed plants around our government housing rented property and inconveniently chose to pile that mess up infront of the only accessible garage door entrance to my garage, meanwhile theres plenty of space around the property to leave park or dump it!? Long shit story short! When Community Environment Volunteer Groups knock DOOR KNOCK offering to Kill Wild & Poisonous Weed Plants, on private or government housing PROPERTIES. That doesn't mean they can make a mess and leave their mess, where ever they want, whenever they want.
In conclusion and as a direct result, the Auckland based SMART Community Leader defended the actions of his Volunteer and suggested I move and hide the mess, their volunteer made, INSIDE MY Red Council Wheelie Bin!! (break council rubbish disposal laws)
A formal complaint has been documented and recorded against the Auckland based SMART Group Leader & Volunteers with NZ Kaiangaora Govt housing, with the intention to prevent community conflict and protect my household (hopefully households in general) from costly intrusive inconsiderate & illegal community service delivery methods, by Community Environment Service Delivery Groups, in future.
Hope this was helpful.
