Poll: Was it the right decision to remove the statue of Captain Hamilton?

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi everyone,

The controversial statue of Hamilton's namesake, Captain John Fane Charles Hamilton, was removed from Civic Square about 10.50am on Friday.

It comes after a formal request from Waikato-Tainui and a man's pledge to tear it down.

What's your view on the removal? Was it the right call?

Those managing the centre made the "difficult decision" to shut the gates so the team could catch up.

Recycling: easy as 1, 2, 5

The Team from Hamilton City Council

Sadly, no one offshore wants to buy Kiwis’ used plastics. This means that while we will be collecting plastics 1-7, we’ll now only be recycling plastics 1, 2 and 5.

We’re asking you all to join the movement and try and avoid purchasing products with plastics 3, 4, 6 and 7. More information on this can be found in the link below ⤵️
