Christchurch council takes hard line on recycling rule breakers

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Almost 1500 Christchurch households could soon have their recycling bins confiscated as the city council cracks down on people who refuse to separate their waste.

About 180 yellow wheelie bins have already been removed and the council has sent final warnings to another 1450 residents.

To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.

Christchurch City Council has spent close to $1.5 million sending almost 1500 truckloads of contaminated material from yellow bins to landfill since May. That equates to about 41 per cent of all yellow bins.

Do you agree with council's strict recycling approach? Let us know below.

Seven suspicious fires within a month at Bottle Lake Forest

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Firefighters are preparing for the possibility of a massive wildfire after seven fires were deliberately lit at a Christchurch forest in less than a month.

The fires have left some nearby residents concerned their properties may come under threat if a large blaze does take hold in Bottle Lake Forest.

The latest fire happened near Landfill Ave, Parklands, about 5.15pm on Monday.

Senior fire risk management officer Bruce Irvine said it was not yet known whether one person or a group were responsible for lighting the fires.

The fires had all been dealt with easily so far, but there was a real risk a blaze could become out of control and spread over kilometres as the fire risk increased heading into summer.
