Hey Auckland, we will continue to collect your kerbside collections during the Easter holiday, but with some changes to collection dates.
Collections from Easter Friday will be a day later and return to normal Monday 20 April.
Remember all rubbish, recycling bins and bags and food scraps bins (if applicable) are to be placed out before 7am on your collection day.
Hi Neighbours, It might be raining but the record dry which is depleting Auckland's water supply is not going away in a hurry. Is it "just a dought?": Read the story below:
Across the months of May and June, we have been asking Aucklanders to create a Pest-Free haven in their backyard through placing traps, pulling weeds, and planting natives.
To help further support Aucklanders we ran a Q&A session with our Pest Free Auckland experts on Instagram and thought we’d share a summary of the great questions and useful answers to get everyone started on their Pest Free Auckland journey.
Pet Rabbits and Calicivirus🐰🐰🐰
🐰There are several strains of rabbit calicivirus (also known as Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV)) in New Zealand. This virus causes severe hepatitis leading to liver failure and sudden death in most cases. There is no specific treatment for this infection.
🐰Vaccination is the best way to protect your pet rabbits. New Zealand Veterinary Association recommends Filovac vaccination to protect against all the strains of this virus.
To minimise the risk to your rabbits:
> Keep them separate from wild rabbits
>Wash your hands between handling rabbits
>Control insects around pet rabbits as they can spread the virus between them
>Avoid cutting grass and feeding it to pet rabbits
>Thoroughly clean and disinfect cages and equipment
Please book your pet rabbit today at Pet Vets Papatoetoe for a health check and vaccination.
