I re­ally en­joy us­ing the bins over bags. It’s so much eas­ier throw­ing a small bag of rub­bish into a bin than try­ing to wran­gle the bags on the ground - of­ten wet from the weather and smelly. We have ours perched right out­side the side door so rub­bish can be tossed right in even in bad weather.

I love these bins. I never had more than one rub­bish bag, so these bins are more than enough for us. I don’t have to worry about bags any­more. Clean and tidy streets!

Anju Sood Flat Bush

Hope­fully we don’t have to start buy­ing pre-paid stick­ers like some

We had the clean­est street af­ter col­lec­tion. No more litter left strewn around the place af­ter birds and cats get into the bags!

It’s pretty cool, but why so small?

To­nia Far­rell Cockle Bay

I agree. Too small for a fam­ily of four and our food scraps go down the wastemas­ter. We were over­flow­ing last week’s col­lec­tion.

There are two sizes, ask for a big­ger one. I’m also part of a fam­ily of four, our bin is only ever half full and we don’t have a garbage dis­poser. How much rub­bish do you gen­er­ate? Try not putting rub­bish in a black sack and then in the bin. Put the liner bags straight in, tons of room. Read­ers are en­joy­ing their new redlid rub­bish bins.

I pre­sume we no longer have to se­curely wrap bro­ken glass or break up lumps of foam styrene pack­ag­ing? That re­ally is good.

David Reid Cockle Bay

Peo­ple need to be told not to place them on the foot­path and con­trac­tors should also not re­turn them to the foot­path. The foot­path

I don’t know whether they’re a bless­ing or not as I never re­ceived a bin and de­spite two phone calls to the coun­cil I still don’t have one. I am think­ing it was stolen. Do they have a sticker on them with your ad­dress?

Jan­neane An­drews Paku­ranga

Yes they do, how­ever, that doesn’t stop some­one flog­ging it and re­mov­ing the stick­ers. The stick­ers also get worn away by the el­e­ments so it would have been a bet­ter idea for them to en­grave the ad­dress onto the bin it­self.
