Council staff to rifle through recycling in bid to improve waste collection

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Are you a gold sticker recycler?
You'll soon find out as council officials start checking yellow recycling bins over coming weeks.

From Monday a four-strong team will be carrying out spot checks on 7500 bins across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula to ensure residents have not put the wrong items out for recycling.

If you get it right? You get a gold sticker slapped on your bin.

But if you've mixed your shopping receipts, bottle lids or plastic bags in with your beer bottles and plastic trays you can expect a note in your letter box with tips on how to recycle correctly.

Residents long for 'hidden gem' Christchurch walkway to be fixed

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

It was once a "hidden gem" for walkers, runners and cyclists.
Now it's a boggy, overgrown, broken mess.

Where other parts of the Christchurch residential red zone have been maintained and used for recreation, the Horseshoe Lake walkway has deteriorated so much since the Canterbury earthquakes people can no longer access it.

Do you think the walkway should be restored? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

Satelites Galore

Les from North New Brighton

For those that maybe interested in what happens above their heads there will be (according to Heavens Above website ) two main drifts of Starlink satelites tonight. One shortly after sunset starting about 8.57pm. reaching 25-30 deg. above horizon in the N.E. (nearly 20 of them) but there will still be a lot of brightness in the sky due to the set sun. Another group (about 40) just after 10.00pm rising in the W.N.W ascending to about 80 deg.in the S.W. (nearly over head) and disappearing S. The whole forty of them will take about 10. min from start to finish. This of course is subject to a clear sky. Good spotting everyone.
