Leave your car at home and use your feet

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Next Tuesday is World Car Free Day and the council is encouraging Wellingtonians to leave their car at home.

Local schools will also be encouraging students to walk, cycle or scooter.
Workers will be encouraged take a bus or a train, or even walk, rather than their car. Have your ever thought what your neighborhood would be like if there were fewer cars?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington City is proposing a by-law banning unaddressed or advertising mail being put in letter boxes marked "no circulars" or '"no junk mail".
The by-law is part of a waste management plan to reduce the amount of material going in to landfills.

Poll: Do you support the council providing wheelie bins?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A move to modernise rubbish collection in Hutt City or a backward step to create a monopoly and force local firms out of business?

Those are the conflicting views of a council decision to introduce a new waste collection and kerbside recycling system. Opponents claim that council-supplied wheelie bins will create a monopoly and force a number of firms that supply bins to close down, with a loss of local jobs.

Tell us what you think. If you do not not want your comments used in a story please put NFP (Not For Publication).
