But the popularity of the playground is more than its rubbish bin can handle. On Facebook, New Brighton residents have called on the city council to increase the amount of bins or times it is emptied at the Marine Pde playground. Residents say more often than not the playground bin and others in the area are full and overflowing. There is one bin next to the new playground’s toilet block, a ‘Bigbelly’ smart bin which sends city council staff a message when it is full and needs emptying. There are other bins along the beach and by the old New Brighton playground. When Pegasus Post went down to the park on Thursday, the city council had just cleared the bins. •Turn to page 3 COOL SUMMER AIR CONDITIONER OFFER! e3 TM Fujitsu 6kW Heat Pump $2,699 FULLY INSTALLED FULLY INSTALLED* MODEL: ASTG18KMCB Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty Call for a FREE Home consultation & quotation today!
