Proposed change to rubbish collection

Elly from Welcome Bay

Hi Everyone, while I was talking to the Council this morning on the flood zoning situation, I mentioned the proposed rubbish collection next year and the use of wheelie bins. Given Mike is disabled and I am semi-disabled and we have a very steep driveway, these bins would have been impossible for us. I received a communication this afternoon from the department in charge of rubbish collection who advise that there will be an assisted service form which will be available to fill in for those people like ourselves, to request this service. It means from my understanding the collectors will take your bins to the roadside, empty them and return them. I have asked Council to please post a message on Neighbourly when this form is available so everyone who is impacted can react.

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Maria from Betta Water Filtration

WATER that is, keep drinking lots of good water... it's been hot out there and you need to hydrate. I know some of you struggle to drink enough water. It makes all the difference if it doesn't taste of chlorine. YUCK. Here's what two clients recently said "The filter is wonderful, working fine and tastes soooo much better!" Nicky.
“We are so pleased we invested in our water filtration through Maria at Betta Water Filtration. I had a few concerns about installing a filter due to the lack of space under the bench, however, I needn’t have as the filter is neatly tucked away in a corner. There is a noticeable difference in the taste and texture of the water and I am enjoying the fact there are less chemicals in it. Thanks Maria." Steph

barking dog

Ross from Hairini

Is it not cruel to leave a small dog locked up in house to bark all day while you go to work.. This is what one of my neighbors do everyday. My weekend falls during the week so hear it all day.
