Re:Inorganic Collection

Vivienne from Pakuranga Heights

Auckland City Council has informed us that due to Covid-19, our inorganic collection scheduled, booked and paid (via rates) due to happen in September 2020 has now been postponed to February 2021. We contacted ACC and posed the question: ‘does this mean we will get 2 inorganic collections in 2021?”. Response: “don’t know, wait and see”. Before becoming a Super City, we use to have inorganic every six months and our rates were much lower. Since the amalgamation our rates keep increasing and we only have one inorganic per annum and we even missed out totally some years. ACC really know how to stuff you around, no transparency or honesty. You just have to suck it up and continue paying. Has anybody else been informed about this postponement?

NZ COVID -19 QR code poster

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

The Ministry of Health has created a tracing app called NZ COVID Tracer. This app works by scanning a QR code on a poster at participating businesses making it easier to identify people who have come into close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
You'll find the MECOSS QR code displayed on the notice board located in the foyer of the All Saints' Community Centre.
