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.

New LED streetlights outside Christchurch home 'obscenely bright and intrusive'

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Every night Gary Bridgman’s Christchurch home is lit up like a sports stadium.

The Fendalton resident blames new LED streetlights installed on the street outside, and says complaints to the city council about an “unbelievable” glare coming through his windows have gone unresolved for weeks.

The two lights either side of the house produce a whiter light than their predecessors, Bridgman says, causing the house to be “lit up like it’s floodlit” at night. He has seen other LED streetlights in his area that are “very good”.

Council says the complaints are being investigated and the contractor has been asked to provide a solution.

One expert said it was hard to find a Canterbury river where at least one indicator was not degrading, but improving quality was a long-term game and people need to keep their eye on the ball.
