Fortnightly Rubbish Collection to Reduce NCC Rates

Angus from Hospital Hill

There are just 3 days to sign up for fortnightly collection of your new wheelie bin.
NCC has not promoted this option.
Go to this website
www.napier.govt.nz...
You will need the 7 digit code stencilled on the side of your new bin. Then follow the prompt on the website.
You will then get an email showing collection days.

NCC claims they want got reduced rubbish waste, yet they have made fortnightly collection incredibly difficult.

Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
