Poll: Is the Government doing enough to stop recyclable materials going to landfill?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

The Government has thrown $124 million at reducing the country’s growing waste pile, but not everyone agrees that’s enough.

Local Government NZ says the funding should be matched with a “strategic waste plan”, with the goal for New Zealand to be able to process its own waste onshore.

In the last decade, the amount of waste at council landfills has increased by 48 per cent.

The Phantom Rubbish Dumper

Ann from Hillcrest

Please be advised that there is someone unknown in this neighbourhood, that is dumping rubbish in other people's bins, the area is in Eban Avenue from Compton Street upwards towards Monarch Avenue. I have had various paper, cartons, etc put in my recycle bin on rubbish day, and the other neighbours have complained as well, so please keep a lookout for these lazy people, they also dump the wrong sort of rubbish in the "green " bins on their monthly refuse collection. If you see anyone doing this especially in the "wee Small hours" do advise the rest of the neighbourhood. Thank you
