Covid update - National figures

Gordon from Halswell

It is now hanging around at high'ish levels, like a bad smell and might or might not, go with way. We were down to below 3000 before Xmas.
As long as we are aware it is still very much here.
Stay safe.

Say goodbye to tyre waste


About 40% of the 6.5 million tyres Kiwis use every year are recycled, repurposed, or used as tyre-derived fuel. But the rest end up in landfills, stockpiled or dumped.

The good news is now there’s an easy solution to all that tyre waste. It’s called Tyrewise and is New Zealand’s first national tyre recycling scheme.

Tyrewise ensures that tyres in Aotearoa New Zealand are recycled or repurposed properly, saving millions from going to the landfill.
