Christchurch City Council has released a new version of its free wheelie bin app as residents continue to struggle to recycle correctly.
The updated app sends reminders about which bins need to be put out for kerbside collection each week and provides information about which items belong in the red, yellow and green bins.
It also includes a searchable database that allows you to search a rubbish item and see which bin it should go in.
The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store and Google Play.
If you already have the app downloaded it should update automatically over the next few days.
Do you think this will make it easier to recycle correctly?
Now that summer's finally here and the holidays are just around the corner for many, we'd love to hear about your favourite summer holiday memories. Has there been a trip that you continue to think about years later? Where did you go, with who and what did you get up to? What made it such a stand-out experience? As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it included in a travel article. Cheers.
Christchurch’s city centre is awash with “dirty, dusty, gravel pits” and the council has had enough.
About 120 car parks within the four avenues are potentially operating without the necessary consent, stifling the city’s revitalisation.
The Christchurch City Council will this month send letters to owners of those sites, giving them 90 days to either cease their operations or apply for and be granted a resource consent.
If they fail to do so, the council could issue owners with a $300 fine and issue an abatement notice to cease the activity. Owners who ignore the notice could face court action. Read more here.
