Christchurch Wheelie Bin App updated - will it help?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Christchurch City Council has released a new version of its free wheelie bin app as residents continue to struggle to recycle correctly.

The updated app sends reminders about which bins need to be put out for kerbside collection each week and provides information about which items belong in the red, yellow and green bins.

It also includes a searchable database that allows you to search a rubbish item and see which bin it should go in.

The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store and Google Play.

If you already have the app downloaded it should update automatically over the next few days.

Do you think this will make it easier to recycle correctly?

Nature- and neighbour-friendly Christmas lights

Kat Neighbourly Lead from Governors Bay

Warm-white or amber LEDs need only slightly more energy than cold-white LEDs. If you want to create the appearance of real candles, use Amber-LEDs with not more than 2200 K. This light looks amazing and has almost no influence on the biological clock of neighbours, or garden wildlife.

Council cracks down on 120 unconsented central Christchurch car parks

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch’s city centre is awash with “dirty, dusty, gravel pits” and the council has had enough.

About 120 car parks within the four avenues are potentially operating without the necessary consent, stifling the city’s revitalisation.

The Christchurch City Council will this month send letters to owners of those sites, giving them 90 days to either cease their operations or apply for and be granted a resource consent.

If they fail to do so, the council could issue owners with a $300 fine and issue an abatement notice to cease the activity. Owners who ignore the notice could face court action. Read more here.
