Christchurch council takes hard line on recycling rule breakers

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

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.

Sarah Pallett promises 'more inclusive' style after defeating Gerry Brownlee in Ilam

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

As she turned away from her roaring fans on Saturday night, Labour’s Sarah Pallett was at a loss for words when asked if she had dreamed of such a victory.

“I dared to hope – we dared to hope. It’s something that we put a lot of work into, and we’re obviously surprised and completely delighted.”

Pallett had just pulled off perhaps the most unlikely of election night coups – ousting National’s Gerry Brownlee to win Ilam, a seat the National grandee held since 1996.

Brownlee called her to concede victory about 10.30pm, leaving her with tears in her eyes and needing the steadying reassurance of campaign manager Megan Woods as the enormity of what had happened hit home.
