Easy: Recycling requires minimal effort for maximum gain for our country and our planet.
Bay ups pace of recycling
MPs Chris Tremain and Craig Foss have
welcomed the $11,000 for Napier and
$8000 for Hastings to increase recycling
in public places and at events, in prep-
aration for Rugby World Cup.
We have seen from events held in
Hastings and Napier that New Zealand-
ers want to recycle their waste when they
are out and about. We need to take the
example set here and spread this mess-
age throughout the rest of the country,
said Mr Tremain, the MP for Napier.
Mr Foss who is the MP for Tukituki,
said New Zealanders are among the
highest producers of waste in the world.
We only recycle 30 per cent of our waste,
despite 85 per cent of it being recyclable.
Each year we send over 100,000 tonnes
of waste to the Omarunui Landfill from
the Hastings and Napier areas. If this
waste was not recycled and left in
landfills, it would fill two Westpac Trust
Sports Stadiums every year.
He said the two councils have a joint
solid waste management plan to help
reduce waste by 25 per cent by 2012.
This is a One Hawke s Bay approach
and one we both are fully behind.
Mr Tremain said international market-
ing by Tourism New Zealand of the 100
per cent Pure New Zealand brand and
our clean green image has created a
reputation for New Zealand of good
New Zealand is heavily reliant on its
natural environment for its economic
wellbeing. Right here in Hawke s Bay we
are leading the way to address this major
We must showcase ourselves and
deliver a world-class major event in a
way that meets our visitors expectations
and lives up to New Zealand s clean,
Many visitors will expect recycling
facilities in public places, he said.
Hastings District Council, as part of
its joint solid waste management plan
with Napier City Council, has rebranded
its waste minimisation activities under
the title Wipe Out Waste. This will place
all aspects of waste under one umbrella
and ensure that a consistent message of
waste minimisation is reinforced through
The council has replaced all waste
signage to incorporate the Wipe Out
Waste logo and replace the dilapidated
uninformative signs. The new signs are
bold, user-friendly and educational.
Mr Tremain said the Rugby World Cup
is a time to showcase not only Hawke s
Bay but also the rest of New Zealand.
Hawke s Bay will lead by example.
for youth safety
The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is introducing
new measures to improve young driver safety.
These measures will support recent law changes.
As of Monday, the minimum age for obtaining a
learner driver s licence increased from 15 to 16.
Next Monday a zero alcohol limit for teenage
drivers comes into force.
NZTA chief executive Geoff Dangerfield said
young drivers were over-represented in crashes
and the changes would address key factors.
Too many of our young people are dying or
being badly injured in crashes on our roads. Road
crashes are the single biggest killer of New Zea-
land teens, and we have the highest road death
rate in the OECD for 15 to 17 year olds, Mr
Raising the minimum driving age to 16 and
bringing in a zero alcohol limit for drivers under
20 will both help to improve the poor safety record
of young drivers in New Zealand.
He said the changes were the first actions to be
implemented as part of the Government s Safer
Journeys strategy, which is aimed at improving
road safety for young drivers.
