Glass recycling starts again next week!

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

We are happy to confirm that our contractors are feeling better and glass collections will start again on Monday 18 April.

We know there will be a bit of a backlog, but we ask that you please only put your glass out in official Council crates, and put it out in stages so that we don't overwhelm the processing plant.

You can still drop your glass off for free at the Recycling Centre at the Southern Landfill.

Co-mingled recycling in bags and wheelie bins is still being collected and recycled as normal.

Thank you all for your patience, kindness and empathy during this time. It is greatly appreciated by us and our contractors.

Recommendations carport repair and roof painting

Julie from Karori

My triple carport’s 2 front supporting steel posts are rusting ( see photos). One of them has had a product put on by a handyman quite some years ago. The 4 posts at the back are ok. Can anyone tell me who or which company I can call to repair these? The carport is about 25 years old.
Also, the colour-steel roof needs repainting . ( all lichen etc, has been removed) Any recommendations on who could do a good and reasonably priced job?

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
