An Auckland trucking company wishes to dump millions of cubic metres of industrial waste in a proposed site in Huntly, close to the only 'swimmable' lake left in the Waikato region. In 2012, a Waikato Regional Council scientist compared the nutrient levels in Waikato lakes to 1316 others globally and found them to be among the worst. This indicator has not shifted in the eight years since.
What do you think about the proposal?

A call to our community!
This year's WEAVE Cultural Market will be on the 11th of December in Garden Place from 4pm till 8pm. The New Zealand Red Cross hosts this as an opportunity for our former refugee and migrant communities to host a food or craft stall, showcasing the talent and diversity that they bring to Hamilton communities. This year we have found ourselves short on a few items and hope that you can support us to spread the word, with the hope of securing these.
We are currently wanting to kindly borrow:
- Gazebos for our stalls.
- Yard games.
Please help us to share the word!
If you are able to help, please feel free to call us on 07 849 0285 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
