Waimakariri council considers confiscating bins from repeat recycling offenders

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Bags full of rubbish, soft plastics, dirty recycling and broken vacuum cleaners were among the assorted items thrown into household recycling bins across the district, despite calls for residents to get on board with changes to recycling.
