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.

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.

The Christchurch City Council has closed Cashel and Lichfield streets between Madras and Barbadoes streets so lights, power and internet cables, and underground service pipes can be removed or rerouted before early work on the city's long-awaited $473 million multi-use arena begins.

The right-hand lanes of Barbadoes and Madras streets have also been closed temporarily, between Tuam and Hereford streets, with no word yet on when they will reopen.

Council vertical capital delivery manager Alistair Pearson said drivers regularly using Cashel and Lichfield streets will need to travel down either Tuam or Hereford streets, and those closed stretches were unlikely to ever reopen. Read more here.
