Eketāhuna glass

Tararua District Council [TDC] recycling centre had a glass bin from Eketāhuna dropped off earlier this week that was highly contaminated with rubbish. While working to remove the rubbish from the glass, staff found a syringe. A TDC spokesperson said it was time-consuming to remove the contamination and the process posed major health and safety risks. “This behaviour costs everyone in Tararua because the load cannot be recycled in such a contaminated condition.”



Storm recovery roadworks will be happening on Te Ore Ore-Bideford Rd and Masterton-Castlepoint Rd tomorrow from 7am until 4pm. Traffic will be managed by traffic lights or manual traffic controllers. Masterton District Council said the Saturday roadworks are being added to keep on top of the storm recovery programme because bad weather has slowed progress.
