Porirua council threatens to confiscate bins from shoddy recyclers

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Porirua City Council is threatening to confiscate recycling bins from people who repeatedly put rubbish in them, as part of a crackdown on recycling contamination.
The council has launched a team of “recycling ambassadors” who will go around checking the contents of recycling bins before they are collected.
Stuff understands that the material being put out includes raw meat and used nappies.
The number of contaminated items in the recycling has been rising in several areas throughout the city, costing between $6000 and $8000 a month to remove.
Do you think it is fair to confiscate recycling bins?

Are you prepared for Omicron?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

With experts predicting that numbers are about to rise rapidly we all need to be prepared.

A basic medical kit should include the following:
Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, a thermometer and re-hydration medicines like Hydralyte. Sore throat treatments such salt gargles, honey, or perhaps a local anesthetic lozenge or spray could also be useful.

Also think about having a plan as to how you get basics like bread and milk if you are isolating. Have you talked to neighbours about how you can help each other?
