Should councils provide pensioner housing?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Mangawhai pensioners are concerned about where they might end up living after Kaipara District Council decided it should no longer provide social housing. Do you think councils should provide pensioner housing? why or why not?

New Blue Recycling Bins

Tom from Onerahi

Ok I can forsee more expenditure coming for the new District council. These new blue bins are one third smaller than the red bins. As I am aware we need to do alot more to reduce waste and recycle more. Why did the council not consider placing strategically bottlebanks every 5 -10 streets, and arrange to have them emptied every 2-3 weeks. I live in an area where i know that some homes use two red bins to put out their empty beer and wine bottles along with the plastic bottles containers and jars. I have a feeling that there will be alot of people going into the council in a months time saying their blue bins have developed legs and walked of with friendly people to live at their addresses in order to get new bins. I am sooo looking forward to how the district council explain this one.
