Do you have jobs you wanted to do before Autumn but ran out of time? I offer property and garden maintenance for rental properties or your home. I specialise in repairs, minor building, gardening and maintenance. I am a skilled gardener, carpenter and problem solver. Call me for an obligation-free quote.
Two conflicting statements from the government follow. The first was broadcast on Neighbourly recently:
www.neighbourly.co.nz... states: 'Take out produce when you get home, and wash first in soapy water to protect against the virus, then rinse to remove any soap residue wipe down packaged goods with a soapy clean towel, then dry.'
BUT on the covid19.govt.nz website the advice for produce is different:
covid19.govt.nz... states: 'for any fresh produce it is always a good idea to rinse them off with clean water, although using soap, disinfectant or detergent is not recommended as this could affect the taste and may cause stomach upsets.'
Just a reminder that kerbside recycling has been paused and the Southern Landfill is closed, so please give your recycling a good clean and store it at home for now.
If you put any recycling bags or crates out on the street, please collect them and take them back to your home.
Rubbish will be collected as usual.
