Please do not put recycling at your kerbside as it will not be collected (rubbish collection continues as normal).
Transfer stations are only open to existing commercial account holders and all recycling drop off points are closed.
We do appreciate your help managing recycling at this time. Our best advice is to store your clean recycling if you can do so safely. If not, we understand some people will need to put it out in their rubbish.
We are looking at what we can do when business resumes as normal to help with the safe and appropriate disposal of recycling.

Something Positive we could all do

Susie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

We (not very far out of Havelock North), have noticed an increasing number of walkers on our roads, and lots with family (bubble) groups. Wouldn't it be great if, when you / we are all out walking, we took some form of receptacle and picked up all the rubbish on the sides of the roads.

Wouldn't that be a great and good thing to do?

If you are worried about contamination, you could wear gloves or use tongs to place in the rubbish container you take.

How is that for a good idea peeps?

Supermarket prices

Jo and Jarrod from Tamatea

Just read an article RE:Supermarkets pricing, as everyone is probably well aware , supermarket owners are making an absolute killing, excuse the inappropriate pun.

She shouldn't really need to, as you would … View moreJust read an article RE:Supermarkets pricing, as everyone is probably well aware , supermarket owners are making an absolute killing, excuse the inappropriate pun. The PM is saying she will look into it and no doubt Legislate , which good on her. She shouldn't really need to, as you would think... "FOODSTUFF'S"...." PROGRESSIVE"...should be compassionate in response to this "COVID19" situation, but here we are, and no surprise actually that these two monopolies play their game , and the average consumer have to pay the extravagant price hikes.
Yesterday morning I went to my local, "Tamatea Paknsave" and had 1st hand experience of these price hikes.
Greggs Coffee, usually $3.89 , yesterday $6.80 and the little sign with the price on it had "Everyday low price", what a joke.
I wont go through every price hike I noticed but found when I went to the check out my usual grocery bill of around $180- $200 indeed rose to $240.
Call it what you will.
In saying this, all praise to the supermarket workers who are doing an exceptional job in this time of crisis, they are at the forefront and risking their lives and there loved ones close to them when they return home from a hard days work to keep us consumers stocked up with our essentials.
I also commend all of my fellow neighbours for as I noticed probably 80% of people walking around the supermarkets were wearing facemasks, a big change to earlier on in the week when I only saw one person wearing a facemask.
Anyway I have digressed slightly. Supermarket prices will no doubt continue to rise and really not much we can do about it so "POSITIVE THINKING", Lets beat this "CURSED VIRUS".
On one good note I did notice a dozen of "Export Gold", has stayed at $19.99.
