In front of the Te Aroha Domain on Whitaker St (opposite Countdown)

You can also recycle glass at these locations (kindly funded by the Glass Packaging Forum). These sites will be staffed, with strict controls around contact and disposal to keep our communities, staff and contractors safe.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
