Two new bins a hot topic

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

The lo­ca­tion of two new rub­bish bins in Beatty Av­enue has be­come a hot topic.

Fol­low­ing con­cerns about the amount of rub­bish in the area, Te Puke Com­mu­nity Board has agreed to in­stall two new rub­bish bins.

How­ever, ex­actly where they will go and what de­sign they will have has yet to be de­cided.

Beatty Av­enue res­i­dent Keith Go­van told the board’s most re­cent meet­ing he was un­sure whether those drop­ping the rub­bish would use the bins, but said at least res­i­dents who picked it up would have some­where to put it.

“You shouldn’t have to,” said chair­man Peter Miller.

“But we do,” said Keith. Coun­cil­lor Grant Dal­ley said he thought the de­sign of the bins meant they would be open to be­ing used for do­mes­tic rub­bish and they were ugly.

The board agreed to fund the bins, with de­sign and lo­ca­tion to be de­cided. CALL YOUR LO­CALLY OWNED SPE­CIAL­ISTS!
