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.

Do you want to know the criminal history of candidates?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Northland MP Matt King is floating a member's bill which would require the criminal history of election candidates to be published, if they were convicted of a crime punishable by two or more years' jail time. What do you think? Would it change the way you vote?
