Re­serve un­der rub­bish watch

South Waikato News - - SPORT/NEWS -

SITE MON­I­TORED: Rub­bish lev­els at Jim Cur­rie Re­serve are be­ing mon­i­tored.

Kin­leith Mill man­ager Ian Whyte said the re­serve area was checked about fortnightly.

‘‘It was checked last week by staff and found to be in a rea­son­able state,’’ he said.

Dur­ing the grow­ing sea­son (hol­i­day sea­son) the grounds care con­trac­tor reg­u­larly cleaned up rub­bish.

Mr Whyte said it was a chal­lenge to main­tain the re­serve in an ideal state given that it was ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic.

‘‘We have to deal with ev­ery­thing from dumped ve­hi­cles to house­hold rub­bish, and, in the past, home­less oc­cu­pants.

‘‘We are very com­mit­ted this week with our Septem­ber out­age but I will have staff check it again this week with an aim to get­ting it back into a tidy state,’’ he said.
