The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Do you think dog poo is a prob­lem for our city?

Per­son­ally, I’m not too sure about that, but would more rub­bish bins around the city ever be a bad thing? I think not.

I think the coun­cil parks and prop­erty man­ager John Brenk­ley’s ex­cuse that res­i­dents would abuse ex­tra bins by dump­ing house­hold waste in them is weak.

If that’s the case, it must al­ready be an is­sue with the lim­ited public bins al­ready avail­able, so why not ad­dress that sep­a­rately?

More bins will not only keep our city clean, of rub­bish and dog poo, but it will send a mes­sage that be­ing tidy Ki­wis is a pri­or­ity for us.

It’s com­ing up to the end of the year, so I en­cour­age those clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions who make use of our What’s On page list­ings to get in touch and let us know what’s go­ing on for your groups over the hol­i­day pe­riod and into the new year.

We’d ap­pre­ci­ate your in­for­ma­tion as soon as pos­si­ble, oth­er­wise your list­ings may be ex­cluded.
