Changes to kerbside rubbish

Steph Rangi Reporter from Taupō Times

Kerbside rubbish collection will continue across the Taupō District, but there will be no kerbside recycling collection and only bagged rubbish will be accepted at the Broadlands Road landfill and district transfer stations, for the next four weeks.

The changes are due to the Government raising the COVID-19 alert to Level 4 from midnight Wednesday and come into effect from Thursday, 25 March, until further notice.

Green waste, recycling or any other materials will not be accepted at any of our facilities until further notice. All bags will need a council sticker or be in a prepaid yellow bag. No bulk loads will be accepted.

Kerbside rubbish collections will continue to be made on normal collection days and people are asked to stockpile recyclables for future collection where possible.

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
