Back where it belongs

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

It was a special day in the newsroom on Monday as Stuff's chief executive Sinead Boucher announced a management buyout of the company, of which the Waikato Times is a part, from its Australian owner Nine Entertainment.

It puts an end to NZME's increasingly desperate bid to get its clutches on Stuff. It also puts it firmly in the hands of those who want the best for it, a NZ owner who understands the business.

What's your view on the Times moving back into NZ hands?

Read more local reaction to the buyout here.

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 ⤵️
