Recycling bins confiscated in Christchurch after residents ignore pleas to separate waste

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

A growing number of Christchurch households have lost their right to recycle as the city council takes a hard line on people who refuse to separate their waste.

Twenty-six yellow bins have been confiscated by the Christchurch City Council and another 52 will be removed from city streets over the next two weeks.

The residents have been warned three times but continue to put contaminated waste in their recycling bins.

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.

Strange Object

Jean from Linwood

Did anyone notice a strange object in the sky last night? I have a habit, which I have had for years, of looking out the window before I close my curtains when I go to bed, and last night I noticed something in the sky, and I kept staring at it all the time because I was so fascinated as to what it was. From down here on earth, it looked like a little square-shaped object, with what looked like 4 tiny windows, with a light behind them – like you see in houses when people turn their lights on before they close the curtains. This object kept bouncing up and down at times, and several times I noticed flashing lights, like laser beams, so I called my husband, who was just getting ready for bed, and I said to him “you want to come and have a look at this”, and when the flash came again, I pointed it out to him. All this was going on around 12.15 a.m., and when I awoke at around 3.00 a.m. from a light sleep, I looked out the window again, and this time the object had moved from the right hand side of our house, and had moved across the sky, so that when I looked out it was now right in front of our house. It was really weird. I would love to know what it could have been.

HEY STUFF

Les from North New Brighton

Hey Stuff what sort of Stuff is this. A very nice Monocular advertised by Genius Ever on your site states 50% of from $139,90 to $69.90 for today only, But hang on it was advertised yesterday at the same price. Go to the web site and the counter starts counting down from 20 minutes to zero telling you you only have this time to make a purchase. go off site and return the counter starts again. This sort of advertising is utter rubbish trying to pressure people into compulsive buying. Very surprised STUFF wood even consider running this sort of rubbish.
