Since a lot of us are using the warmer weather and more daylight hours to get some much needed clean up done, thought I would tell you about our encounter with a local rubbish removal company.
We did a big clean up of our garage and looked at skip prices, for what we needed would be quite pricey and another few hours work for us. Like many, we are time poor and looked around for another alternative. We found one!!
The company is called 'Junk n dump' - they take care of EVERYTHING they take it all away (including building material, whiteware, furniture etc) and sort it to recycle what they can, pass items that are useful onto charity and dump the rest reducing what goes to the tip!! And to top it off they are very reasonably priced!!
They are friendly, extremely efficient and even swept the floor of our garage, they cleared our rubbish within 45 minutes!! They aren't on Neighbourly (yet) but can be found with on facebook www.facebook.com... or call Manny on 022 167 9027, they give free quotes and are very quick with any communication. I absolutely recommend!!
Attached is a before and after picture of our garage, I am in no way associated with the company just joe bloggs public who was very impressed with their service and believe in keeping things local (they are Tawa based) and love they way they do things, knowing items were being recycled and reused where possible.
Meet Benny (puppy) and Bobby (kitten) who live with proud owner Alvante Harris.
When he took this photo, he says they were making it clear they did not want him to go to work.

"When photographing around Wellington, you just never know who, or what, is observing you! This Kaka came to check me out, when I was photographing the city from Te Ahumairangi Hill, last night."
Hi Neighbourly folk, have you spotted a kārearea lately? It is one of New Zealand's rarest birds but it is doing well in Wellington City.
If you have seen one, we would like to know where it was.
