Major issues with the rubbish collection.

Robert from Greerton - Parkvale

She said all councils were struggling to weed out contaminants from recycling, a trend which kicked off during the Covid-19 alert levels when people began to clear out their properties.

In March, the council suspended recycling services to 25 properties after contamination was repeatedly found inside recycling bins.

“We are following in the steps of other councils by employing fulltime inspectors,” Braithwaite said.

How to Stop Your Pet from Destroying Your Blinds

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

From a dog’s point of view, blinds are just an obstacle keeping them from the window. When there’s a something outside, the blinds just become a casualty of the resulting frenzy to get out there. Keep blinds raised part-way to allow your pup to see out and avoid wreckage. Avoid this issue by teaching your dog to stay calm in exciting situations.

Many dogs, especially as puppies, will chew on anything in sight. If your blinds have become your pets teething stick, it’s because he doesn’t have anything else to chew on. Deter dogs from gnawing on blinds by spraying slats with sour apple spray (available at pet stores). It smells and tastes terrible to dogs but is neutral to humans.

When you’re away from home, keep your dog in a safe room and give them special toys that are otherwise hidden away. Treat-filled toys and meat flavoured bones are especially appealing. With these toys to keep them preoccupied, they won’t think twice about the blinds.


Dogs can be like children, they have a lot of energy and it will find a way out whether you provide it or not. With this in mind, give your dog an opportunity to tire themselves out and your home might not become a race track.


What are the pet-friendliest window dressings?


Try vertical blinds. Furry friends can nudge slats out of the way to see out the window and they’ll fall back into place afterwards. If pets chew on blind slats, you can order individual replacements instead of getting a whole new set. If pet hair and grime are a problem, just wipe them clean with soap and water.
