We Say, You Say: Fire burns in Waikato landfill since August

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The Waikato District Council has issued a health notice to residents living within three kilometres of Puke Coal’s construction and demolition landfill in Pukemiro, where a fire has been burning since August.

The dioxin warning is a precautionary measure and the number of people the notice affects is low, with a total of 212 households within the buffer zone. Abatement notices have been issued to the landfill owner in relation to breaches of the Resource Management Act.

What extra precautions do you think should be introduced to prevent another environmental incident like this happening again?

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!
