I suppose we cannot say that it's a new service anymore. After a month, I would have thought that the kink's have been sorted, NOT.
I was patient when receiving 2 yellow bins. I was patient when my black council bags got left behind after being told that it will be taken with my neighbors bins.
After putting out my brand spanking new red bin this morning, came home after the morning school run to this.

My low expectations just got lower. Not amused at all.

A third of all the houses for sale in Lower Hutt are in a suburb – Wainuiomata – that’s shaken off a dodgy reputation during the housing crisis.
TradeMe has just 213 properties listed for sale in the whole of Lower Hutt – a city with a population of over 100,000. Seventy are in Wainuiomata, which contains only 16.4 per cent of Lower Hutt’s housing stock.
Wainuiomata is in the midst of a purple patch with new investment flooding in after years of stagnation. The Hutt City Council recently announced an $8.5 million upgrade of the Queen St shopping area, which follows the building of a new supermarket and shopping area, and a $50m retirement village.

Could you get more from your Vitamin C supplement?

Draft maps of river and stormwater flood hazards have been prepared. Next week, we’ll start taking the maps to communities across the city, and we’d like people with memories or photos of past flood events to help us make the finished maps as accurate as possible.

Lower Hutt residents are giving up their vege patches and losing their lawn as deer move in on urban areas.
No one keeps tabs on deer numbers but anecdotally they are turning up in a range of urban areas including Naenae, Stokes Valley, Eastbourne and Wainuiomata, as well as the Belmont Regional Park.
The Hutt City Council has a $15,000 fund for culling deer, which is administered by Greater Wellington Regional Council.
Department of Conservation’s biodiversity threats advisor Dave Carlton​ says the deer that help themselves to Taylor’s garden point to a much bigger problem.
There are similar issues in urban areas throughout New Zealand and DOC is working on a national framework to come up with a strategy to deal with deer.
