The deadline is Janu- ary 31 at 4pm and deputy mayor Penny Hulse says it's important people have their say. The council has so far received more than 700 submissions on the draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan. While we're imp- ressed with the response to the plan we'd encour- age others to take the chance to have their say on tackling waste,'' Mrs Hulse says. A series of hearings will be held for submitters in February and March. The final Waste Management and Minimisation Plan is then expected to be adopted in May or June. Under the council's draft waste plan each house would have three rubbish bins. One for recycling, one for residual waste and a third bin for organic rub- bish. The bin which con- tains household waste bound for landfill would have a smart tag to act like a barcode and every time it is picked up it will incur a charge. And a new organic col- lection would be used for household food and gar- den waste which could be used for composting. Aucklanders throw away 97,000 tonnes of food and green waste every year which could be used to produce com- post according to council figures. The submission forms are available online from www.aucklandcouncil. govt.nz and council ser- vice centres, libraries and local board offices from next month. See www.aucklandcoun cil.govt.nz/wasteplan. Kids go fishing The police charity Blue Light is hosting its biggest ever Kids Gone Fishin' event on Sunday.
