We're keen to talk to people about how their social contact has changed since the lockdown. If you're happy to be interviewed and identified, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
