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.
