Collect a bag of rubbish - and you could win prizes!

Resene

Too often we think that picking up litter is someone else’s job - but collecting rubbish is such a simple way we can help our community, the environment and our own health and wellbeing.

This is why Resene is proud to sponsor the “Walk & Collect Weekend” on December 7 and 8. Take a walk over the weekend and collect a bag of rubbish in your community - it's simple but with a collective effort can make a big difference.

It's free to participate and there are prizes to be won - including a $200 Resene Gift Card! Simply head to their event page and register your interest.

Annual food drive set to be canned due to sponsor woes and lagging goodwill

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Morning Neighbours,
After running for 28 years, the big annual pre-Christmas food drive in Palmerston North is no longer considered viable. Part of the problem is potential sponsors don't want their name anywhere near plastic bags given their poor environmental reputation. However, the Salvation Army sends out recyclable bags.
Could you tell the difference between recyclable and non-recyclable plastic? Do you think businesses are overreacting, or does the annual cause need to change with the times?
Please mark comments NFP if you don't wish them to be included in an article.

Parking Ticket

Debra from Milson

Today I got a Parking ticket from (Wilson parking) which is unusual for me. More unusual is that I got it for not putting up my Mobility Card when in a Mobility Park at Countdown Ranagitiki Supermarket. Yes I do have a Card and the mobility issue that says I can use these parks and am sure that as usual I put it up when I left my car. Strangely until today was unaware that Wilson Parking was monitoring these parks. How do I prove that it was up when they say it wasn't and I didn't find the ticket till I got home? For others, first off be aware someone is watching (Wilson staff) and you may get a ticket if you park in Supermarket Carpark Parks for obviously a variety of reasons.
