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.

A Christchurch woman whose 6-year-old son was told to go f... off back to his own country says she wants police to take racist abuse incidents more seriously.

Maryam Frozan was reversing out of a Hornby Hub mall car park at the same time as another motorist about 1pm on Sunday, so drove back in to give way to the other motorist.

That motorist, a woman in her 60s, blew her horn a few times then got out of her car, strode up to Frozan’s car, put her head in the driver’s window, and verbally abused her and her son.

Police were able to track the woman down by her number plate, and she was given a formal warning for threatening behaviour. But Frozan says it is not enough, and she wants the woman charged. Continue reading here.

Greater Christchurch has overwhelmingly voted red – giving Labour all but two of its electorate seats and the majority of the party vote.

Labour supporters at the party's election event in Christchurch on Saturday night were barely able to keep a lid on their excitement and glee at National’s astonishingly poor performance in the city – and their knives came out for their parliamentary colleagues in Blue.

“At last, Christchurch has woken up,” said Duncan Webb, Christchurch Central’s incumbent.

“It’s been a long campaign, exhausting, but the reward you get for that, it’s amazing.
