Waimakariri's veteran Civil Defence volunteers recognised

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Three of Waimakariri’s veteran Civil Defence volunteers – including a father-daughter duo – have been recognised for completing more than a decade of service each.

Regional emergency management adviser Peter Cameron presented Mike Bryce, Nikita Bryce and district councillor Kirstyn Barnett with the Ministry of Civil Defence 10-year Long Service Award at a special ceremony hosted at a Civil Defence Cadet camp in Glentui in July.

All three recipients have responded to a variety of emergencies across the South Island, including earthquakes, fires and flooding events.

Congratulations Mike, Nikita and Kirstyn!

Steak and donuts found in North Canterbury recycling inspection

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Waimakariri residents are learning recycling lessons the hard way as a district-wide wheelie bin inspection gets under way.

The council has been warning people, since May, not to abuse the system or face losing their bin privileges, and contractors are now out in force armed with calling cards and tags for offending bins.

Solid waste asset manager Kitty Waghorn said the inspections kicked off in Pegasus on October 12, where six streets turned up 30 contaminated bins, mostly containing food – including packets of unopened steaks and donuts.
