Hi neighbours, soft plastic recycling bins are coming back.

The Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme, which was suspended in 2018, has returned to Auckland and Hamilton and, as of October, will be back in Wellington too.

It can get confusing trying to keep track of what to recycle, what not to recycle, and what's just rubbish.

We have been made aware of a video on social media of Titahi Bay beach with comments of suspected wastewater pollution/sewage.

We can confirm there has been no discharge or overflow event from the Porirua Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The video shows seaweed and sea foam, which is common following heavy winds.

We will be conducting tests in the area for reassurance, and will provide an update when these results have been received.

LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS

Jan from Ebdentown

MEET THE CANDIDATES
I see in The Leader this week, that five of the Councillors standing for re-election are the same five that failed to keep their oath to serve and represent the people of Upper Hutt regardless of their personal feelings towards the citizen or the nature of the issue, promising to facilitate a citizen or group to navigate and understand Council processes and represent them and their issues to Council.
COUNCILLORS - Chris Carson – Blair Griffith – Paul Lambert – Glenn MacArthur – Dave Wheeler – have all blatantly failed in their sworn duty.
They are, in my direct experience, never to be trusted, a vote for them is to vote for people who abuse and misuse the trust and power invested in them. They only serve themselves and the Incumbent Mayor.
It is time for new faces, younger faces, diverse people, who have serving Upper Hutt at heart, people with progressive 21st century awareness.
Tracy Ultra, is a person who is proactive in the community and stands up and fights for the rights of Upper Hutt. She is both visible and accessible, she has my vote, as does Helen Swales and Angela McLeod.
I will research the other candidates and make my choices accordingly.
What is assured is that I will not vote for the five oath-breakers.

Yesterday we had 10 different pieces of it clogging up the letter box and this is the fourth week it has happened. We have a large sign on our fence right beside the letter box that says in large bold letters No Junk Mail but whoever is delivering it is taking no notice of it.
