Inorganic Rubbish Collections On Again In Manukau

It¡¦s that time of the year when residents in Manukau can get rid of all those unwanted household goods growing mould in back yards and garages. Inorganic rubbish collections will run throughout the city from August through to mid December.

Manukau City Council implores everyone not to put their inorganic rubbish out before the appropriate time. Past collections have seen people putting their rubbish out days, if not weeks, prior to the collection time resulting in piles of rubbish being out in the street longer than they have to be.

All residents will receive a green leaflet ten days before collection in their area. Residents are asked to put their rubbish out only in the weekend immediately prior to the collection date on their leaflet. Indicative dates have been set for each ward.

Mangere ¡V during August
Papatoetoe ¡V during September
Otara ¡V mid September until early October
Manurewa ¡V October
Pakuranga ¡V early November
Howick ¡V mid November until late November
Clevedon ¡V early December

Everyone will receive their collection before Christmas but only during the designated week for their area.

If people are unsure about when to put inorganic rubbish out, have missed or lost their green leaflet, or have any questions, they should call the 24 hr Call Centre on PH 262 5104 or Alpha Refuse Operators on PH 273 9205.

This year there will be three collections. All will be made within a day or so of each other.

„h The first one will take all inorganic materials including carpets, beds, bric a brac, furniture and inorganic rubbish.
„h A separate collection will take place for scrap metal including household appliances and
„h A separate collection for tyres only.

Last year saw 500 tonnes of metal and tyres recycled. Paint cans will only be collected if they are empty. Paint cans that aren¡¦t empty as well as other hazardous goods can be disposed of at four HazMobile days which will be advertised in community newspapers and through another letterbox drop in each area just prior to the collection. The first Hazmobile day will be held in Pakuranga in September.

Items that won¡¦t be collected, besides hazardous materials, also include garden waste and soil, household renovation materials, bricks and broken concrete, fibrolite, whole car bodies and whole water tanks, glass and anything else that can¡¦t be lifted by two people.

Stuart Gane, Senior Policy Analyst says it¡¦s important that people only put rubbish out the weekend before collection to keep up Manukau¡¦s image as a clean vibrant city and for safety of others in the street.

¡§Most people look forward to inorganic collections because it¡¦s an easy way to get rid of that unwanted rubbish stockpiling in the back yard. However there¡¦s also a certain amount of responsibility that goes with the collection and that¡¦s keeping to the dates specified and encouraging your neighbours to do the same. It also makes it easier for everyone if small loose items are packaged and sealed in cardboard boxes or strong plastic bags.¡¨

Gordon Campbell: On Finding A Model To Replace The Monarchy


One feels reluctant to pre-empt the verdict of history, but maybe we need to have a Plan B in mind just in case the reign of King Charles III turns out badly. With that possibility in mind, are there any other countries that do a reasonably good job of electing their ceremonial head of state? There is no perfect model for New Zealand to follow but - arguably - Ireland has made a pretty good fist of it over the past 70 years or so. Ireland has roughly the same population as New Zealand, so the pool of talent is similar in size...
