Keeping it clean

NPDC from New Plymouth District Council

Hi Neighbours,

I want to share my top secrets on how you can be the perfect recycler!

Our community is doing great with more than 80% of recyclables we put on the kerbside for collection getting recycled, but with your help, we can increase that. It’s easy: we just need to empty and rinse out our containers, as dirty recycling goes to the landfill.

Clean your plastic containers (stamped 1-7 in a triangle) and leave them unsquashed. Next, leave your items loose, and put bottle lids in the red bag.

Keep up the good work!

Been Ripped off

Graeme from Whalers Gate

Letting people know about me being ripped off last week.Went to my Doctor in Waitara to get something to break Phlegm (Mucus) down. Got sent next door to the Unichem Chemist and the chemist grabbed a bottle of Robitussin off the shelf. $25, thanks very much. Ran out before the week was up. Got my wife to buy me another bottle, today from the Supermarket, South Rd, New Plymouth. $15. How can a Chemist justify that sort of increase in price. Waitara people, you are being Ripped off as well

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
