Upper Hutt Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

The good news is Up­per Hutt peo­ple are re­cy­cling. The bad news is they are mak­ing a real mess of it. While the first week of the city coun­cil’s free drop-off trans­fer sta­tion at Park St has high­lighted how wel­come a ser­vice it is to the com­mu­nity, lim­i­ta­tions in its card­board and paper ca­pac­ity, days and hours of open­ing and ac­cess have been starkly ev­i­dent. The re­sult­ing dump­ing of ma­te­rial - re­cy­clable or other­wise - in huge vol­umes has turned the area into a rub­bish dump at times. The fledg­ling ser­vice needs to be treated sen­si­bly. In th­ese early days it might not be meet­ing ex­pec­ta­tions but ev­ery­one needs to be re­spon­si­ble and play their part in mak­ing it work, long-term, for their city.
