Second hand shops

Rachel from Russley

Not impressed at all with prices at the second hand shops, especially the Salvation Army shops.
Considering most things are donated and a pretty hot water bottle cover is $6!
I can buy a new hot water bottle and cover for $7.
Not impressed at all.
How do people set up a house cheaply if limited to just getting things from second hand shops.
The kitchenware prices are about the same as new items......

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.
