Public Urged To Report Medical Waste

The public is being asked to contact Hutt City Council if medical waste is found on the banks of the Hutt River or the Wellington Harbour coastline.

Discarded needles, liquid medicines and expired tablets were recovered from the Hutt River near Ewen Bridge on Friday.

Hutt City Environmental Investigation Officer Alan Pope says there is a possibility some of the waste may have been washed further downstream and into the harbour.

Anyone finding any medical waste should avoid contact with the material and get in touch with the Hutt City Council Environmental Investigation Officer 04 570 6890.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
