Change to Northern Outlook delivery during NZ lockdown

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The government has just advised that printed periodicals and non-daily publications are not considered essential services under the news and media designation. That means that we won’t be able to print and deliver our community newspapers for the next four weeks of the lockdown. You can still see local news on press.co.nz and on our Facebook and Neighbourly pages.

HeartKids Fundraiser

Roxanna from Hurunui District

Hello neighbours- this time last year we had a wonderful (albiet cold) day taking part in the annual street collection for HeartKids NZ. Maybe you were one of those lovely people who donated when we were out and about! Sadly due to COVID 19 we are unable to do a street collection this year- still families and babies like mine benefit so much from your help! If you would like to donate to our online fundraiser please follow the link below... Best Regards, Roxanna & baby Embrance heartcanterbury.raiseit.co.nz...

Waimakariri council considers confiscating bins from repeat recycling offenders

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Waimakariri ratepayers face having their wheelie bins confiscated if they continue to abuse the system.

The warning comes after three truckloads of recycling had to be dumped in landfill last week because of contamination.

Bags full of rubbish, soft plastics, dirty recycling and broken vacuum cleaners were among the assorted items thrown into household recycling bins across the district, despite calls for residents to get on board with changes to recycling.
