Clips for bins

Carolyn from Highlands Park

I collected a clip from the council last week to lock the lid on the recycling bin after it got blown over in the wind. I had to pay $4 for one. I was told that if I returned my left over pink bags it would be free. We see rubbish around the streets on windy days which is never picked up. If council were to make these clips free more people would get them and we do indirectly pay for the bags and bins. Surely it would be in the best interests of council to provide them (supply them with the bins on delivery) to keep our city tidy.seems like a no brainer to me

Buy-back and amnesty for prohibited firearms and parts

Social Media Advisor from Manawatu, Taranaki, Whanganui-Ruapehu Police

After changes to firearm laws, the government introduced a six month amnesty period. This means that anyone with firearms and parts that are no longer legal have until 20 December 2019 to hand them in to Police.

Police are providing a number of ways for people to hand-in their firearms or parts, including Police-run collection events - bit.ly...

If you can’t make a collection event, check whether there is a dealer near you - bit.ly...

If you think you have a unique prohibited item and are eligible to apply for compensation, find out how you can do that here - bit.ly...

Some firearms can also be modified and there is also a list of approved gunsmiths eligible to do the work - bit.ly...

FAQ’s here - bit.ly... or call 0800 311 311.
