Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

Soft plastic recycling bins are back

Paul Reporter from Stuff

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.

Here's what you can and can't put in soft plastic recycling bins.

Titahi Bay beach

The Team from Wellington Water

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.
