Council advises to leave out your wheelie bins

Christchurch City Council is asking all residents in Christchurch to put their bins out as normal throughout the bad weather, as they will be collected by our contractors as soon as conditions allow.

Tim Joyce, Contracts Manager for City Water and Waste Unit says, “We ask all residents to leave their bins out, as normal, and the Council kerbside collection contractors will collect once they can get their trucks back on the road. The weather is expected to hamper road conditions in the coming days, so once it is safe for the trucks to get around, they will continue collections.”

If you have any concerns or feel your bin has been missed, please contact us at the Council Call Centre on (03) 941 8999.

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>>
