Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

Hi neighbours, soft plastic recycling bins are coming back.

The Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme, which was suspended in 2018, has returned to Auckland and Hamilton and, as of October, will be back in Wellington too.

It can get confusing trying to keep track of what to recycle, what not to recycle, and what's just rubbish.

Here's what you can and can't put in soft plastic recycling bins.

Manukau East Community Networking Meeting

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

At a recent MECOSS Community Networking Meeting, sprightly Brenda Loader (96), spoke about her plans to formally celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Howick's Horticultural Society in 2023 - the same year Brenda also turns100!
Because she feels she's not getting any younger, Brenda is putting a call out to those interested in getting involved with the planning of this special occasion, to come forward and join the organising committee.
Please contact MECOSS, if you're available to assist.
