Our Kerbside rubbish and recycling collections continue as usual. Pictured here are our new official blue rubbish bags, though the old grey ones will be collected just the same!
Please put your rubbish out early, i.e. before 7am, as we are managing start times to reduce risk and help the crews get collection runs finished before dark.
Please also double-bag potentially hazardous rubbish like tissues to protect collectors from spreading germs.
NorthTec is launching a new city centre learning hub in the former Mallets shop. It will be a digital learning hub for students and a spot for potential students to make inquiries. The hub will open early June. What do you think of this move to the CBD? Do you have any other ideas for some of the empty shops in the area?
Authorities fear a Marsden Point site where about a million litres of toxic chemicals are stored could cause a "catastrophic" explosion or fire, with the potential to damage New Zealand's fuel pipeline. The site is to be urgently cleared of all hazardous substances but that may not be easy with many in unnamed and leaky containers. What do you think about the site and who should clean it up?
Check out our menu... rice meals are available 11am-6pm.
