Waste­Busters AGM

About 20 peo­ple at­tended the Waste­Busters an­nual meet­ing in Wanaka last week. Gen­eral man­ager Sue Coutts said this year the cen­tre would be try­ing to get more peo­ple to re­cy­cle in a bid to re­duce re­cy­clable ma­te­rial go­ing to land­fill. More than 5000 tonnes of waste was be­ing sent to land­fill, about 96 tonnes a week, which could pos­si­bly be fur­ther sorted, Ms Coutts said.

Wine win­ners

Cen­tral Otago tip­ples might have missed the top tro­phies in this year’s Air New Zealand awards but there was plenty of rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the gold medal cat­e­gory for pinot noir. Grasshop­per Rock Cen­tral Otago, Low­burn Ferry Home Block and Woo­ing Tree all won ‘‘pure gold’’ medals for their pinot noir and com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able pro­duc­tion. Other Otago win­ners for pinot noir were Archangel, a Queensberry win­ery, Do­main Road vine­yard in Ban­nock­burn, Grey­lands Ridge in Alexan­dra and Mt Michael Bessie’s Block.
