Residents’ recycling

habits missing mark

• By Bea Gooding

RESIDENTS IN the eastern

suburbs appear to have been doing

a rubbish job at maintaining good

recycling habits.

An Official Information Act request

by Pegasus Post revealed the

suburbs of Linwood, Woolston,

Shirley, Parklands, New Brighton,

Richmond, Wainoni and Aranui

were in the top 10 suburbs with

the most yellow

bin rejections per

year since 2018

due to contamination.

However,

residents in the

Alexandra

Davids

southern suburbs

of Spreydon,

Somerfield, St

Martins and

Opawa were mostly well behaved,

receiving the most gold stars for

compliance out of 30,961 awarded

across the city between January

and August this year.

Alexandra Davids, chairwoman

of the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board and of

Keep Christchurch Beautiful was

disappointed with the revelation

in the east.

REJECTIONS: Data obtained from the city council has

revealed the suburbs with the most non-collections due to

contamination in yellow recycling bins.

Offenders could lose bins

• From page 1

“It’s super disappointing, I

think perhaps there is a lack of

education around that within

those areas,” she said.

“I have seen bins that are still

full at the end of collection and

are knocked over in the street,

and I can see people have thrown

general waste into their recycling

bins.

“Unfortunately it’s a bit of laziness

on people’s behalf, like with

people not washing containers,

but there’s still a lack of education

on what can go into those

bins.”

Excluding the lockdown,

between January and August this

year, 16,119 bins across the city

were not emptied because they

contained contaminating items.

The top offending items found

in yellow wheelie bins in the last

three years were soft plastics,

plastic lids, food waste, dirty recycling

and tools and appliances.

Although fines were not issued,

the city council had the

power to remove bins after three

repeated offences.

Removals have mostly been

in Linwood and the central city,

and more removal requests were

in progress in Aranui, New

Brighton and Woolston.

Davids believed more could

NASTY: Food waste and dirty recycling shouldn’t be

placed in the yellow bin.

be done to encourage better

habits and reduce what was sent

to landfill, such as having more

recycling bins in public areas,

reducing what people purchased

to lessen manufacturing demand

and more education.

“Other public areas of the city

have three bins for recycling,

rubbish and compost, but in the

east, we see very little of that.

We generally just have normal

rubbish bins where everything

is thrown in the same bin,” she

said.

“Recycling education is always

in other people’s faces in other

areas, but we also don’t see that

here as often, so the council

needs to improve communications

around recycling and what

can go in.”

Action plan to

reduce foul odour

in Bromley fails

• By Bea Gooding

AN ACTION plan to rid

Bromley of a stink that has

plagued the area for years has

failed to successfully reduce foul

odours in the last three months.

Earlier this year, city councilrun

facilities Living Earth and

EcoCentral was identified as

significant odour emitters, and

in agreement with Environment

Canterbury, an Adaptive Management

Plan was implemented

to address the issue.

The city council was now considering

longer-term options to

alleviate the issue once and for all

following the three-month trial.

In the plan’s first month, 174

reports of odours were submitted

by the community in June, which

decreased from 225 reports in May,

however, the number of reports

soared for the remaining two

months when smells were meant to

have improved – with 204 reports

in July, and 272 in August.

In a joint statement, Linwood

ward city councillor Yani Johanson

and ECan councillor Nicole

Marshall said the plan’s shortcomings

were not acceptable.

“Our community has been

very patient with both councils

while work was done through

the Adaptive Management Plan

process to improve the situation,”

they said.

The loan initially stated that

the councils would work together

with the intention of seeing rapid

and significant improvements

over three months.

ECan’s AMP report concluded

that there the increasing number

of offensive odour incidents were

related to Living Earth, and less

so from EcoCentral.

“EcoDrop has employed effective

mitigations on-site throughout

the AMP period and there

have been no substantiated cases

of offensive odour beyond the

boundary,” it said.

Measures included prioritising

odorous waste for immediate

compaction and clearing all

waste each evening.

“Our conclusion is that

there has been no reduction in

offensive odours from Living

Earth over the three-month

period.”

Milestone for owner of fish and chip shop

• By Bea Gooding

FOR PETER Joe, running

Gourmet Seafoods QEII isn’t all

about the fish and chips.

The iconic, third-generation

fish and chip shop owner celebrates

25 years in business this

week and said it was the people

who have kept him going for all

these years.

The 61-year-old believed it was

one of the greatest achievements

in his life.

“It’s not just about the fish and

chips, you know. The people

make it happen. They come in

and support us, talk about what’s

going on in their lives, and

they’re loyal,” said Joe.

“It’s encouraged us to keep

going, to keep pushing along and

be resilient.”

From earthquakes, snowstorms

and now Covid-19, the

last two decades have dished up

many challenges for the passionate

fish and chip connoisseur,

but that did not get in the way of

Joe’s positive outlook on life.

“I have a positive outlook and

I don’t let things get me down. I

look at it as a challenge and I say

to myself that I can handle this,”

he said.

“There’s always going to be

challenges in life anyway, so

you’ve got to overcome them.”

Before Gourmet Seafoods,

Joe already had a stepping stone

into the industry and saw an

opportunity to continue a family

tradition.

His grandparents moved from

China to open to their own store

in Lower Hutt, followed by his

parents in Wellington.

“We came from Wellington.

My wife Helen’s family is from

Christchurch, so we decided to

venture out to a different part of

New Zealand and had an opportunity

to go back into business,”

he said.

His efforts over the last 25

years paid off when they were

voted last year for serving the

best fries of any fish and chip

shop in Canterbury, the West

Coast, Nelson and Marlborough

at The Chip Group Industry

Awards.

“It’s all about the oil, how you

cook it and having good quality

chips – no shortcuts.”

Joe said fish and chips were always

the most popular items but

noted that much had changed

in the industry over the years,

such as catering to gluten-free

customers and adding new items

to the menu to keep up with

changing trends.

“The industry has changed in

terms of the cooking style, new

products, and now there’s even

an online training course on

how to make fish and chips.”

Whether it was to convince

people to buy the house of their

dreams or to simply brighten up

someone’s day, Joe loved what he

did and he would not have it any

other way.

“I feel like a counsellor in some

ways, but it’s good to help people

– that’s the way I see it,” he said.

“I love working and the people,

so I’m going to keep going and

take each day as it comes.”

Call to arms to boost RSA

• By Matt Slaughter

MEMBERSHIP IS dwindling

at New Brighton Returned

and Services Association.

Its secretary Garry House

said the number of members

at the RSA on Mafeking St has

dropped from about 300 before

the earthquakes to about

110 now as a result of many

previous members moving or

dying.

He said part of the RSA’s

problem is it is tucked away

on a cul-de-sac and a number

of people don’t know where

it is.

Said House: “I think the

locals need to have a greater

awareness of our existence

and where we are and get

rid of the notion that unless

you’re a serving member it’s

not for you. We will accept

any reasonable person to

come and have a drink and

play billiards or snooker, you

do not need to be a member.

“We would love some

younger members,” he said.

The RSA’s facility,

which it shares with New

Brighton Bowling Club, was

constructed new in 2018

after its original premises

on New Brighton Rd was

damaged beyond repair in the

earthquakes.

Its $600,000 games room,

equipped with snooker and

pool tables and darts boards,

won an award at the New

Canterbury Architecture

Awards last year.

But House said this has not

led to an increase in current

service personnel or patrons

Now only

$35.80

Plus $5 P&H per copy

coming through the door.

House said if membership

numbers continue to decrease

its future may be in doubt but

this is not going to happen on

his watch.

“If it fell significantly, there

may become a point where the

costs exceed the income. That

is a possibility but that’s the

same in any business, I mean,

we’re not preaching doom

and gloom at the moment

but we can see that it’s common

sense that we need to do

something.”

He said New Brighton’s Anzac

day celebrations attracted

about 3500 people last year

and if the RSA ever closes this

event may no longer be able to

happen.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

PEGASUS POST

Godwits return to

estuary feeding spots

• By Bea Gooding

THE AVON-Heathcote Estuary

has welcomed back the first

of the godwits from Alaska,

who have made the eight-day,

11,000km journey back to their

feeding spots.

About 125 bar-tailed godwits

have so far arrived from their

breeding grounds from the other

side of the world to enjoy the

warmer months in Canterbury,

and many more were to be expected

over the next few weeks.

The city council ornithologist

Andrew Crossland said they arrived

on September 14, the same

date as the previous years of

2015 and 2017, and was expecting

between 1300 to 1500 more

godwits arrivals by the end of

November this year.

During NZ’s winter, 306 godwits

were counted on the city’s

estuaries.

“Some of these birds disappeared

during August as they

become restless and move about

the country.”

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a

non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s most

important coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird found in

the estuary. Her column aims to raise the understanding of the values and

uniqueness of the area.

Innovative gull dominates other birds

NOT FUSSY: The wide-ranging

appetite of black-backed gulls has

led to a large increase in numbers

since their arrival in New Zealand.

PHOTO: ANDREW CROSSLAND

WORDS LIKE innovative,

adaptable, cunning and

survivors spring to mind

when talking about the

black-backed gull or karoro

– the largest and most

common gull species in New

Zealand.

They are found anywhere

across the country in

non-forested areas, from

coastlines to high country

farming areas.

Since European arrival,

numbers of these large birds

have exploded due to the

fact that they quite like the

introduction of farms and

especially landfills where

these not too fussy eaters

have done extremely well.

With an appetite for anything

from newborn lambs,

rabbits, eggs and chicks from

other bird species, landfill waste,

public rubbish bin contents and

fishing offal from fishing boats,

numbers have increased from

a few thousand to an estimated

half million plus, with some colonies

reaching up to 1000 birds.

Carrying the disease salmonella,

their waste can actually

‘pollute’ grassed areas which can

be detrimental to farm animals

and cause pollution in our waterways.

In Christchurch with the

closure of the Burwood

Landfill in 2005 this bird

has dispersed throughout

the city where it manages

quite well.

In 2018, black-backed

gulls managed to raid

the chicks from every

single nest of the critically

endangered black-billed gull

in Charlesworth Reserve and

they have, understandably,

not returned there since

(and neither have other

nesting birds such as the

pied stilt).

Due to the current risk

of losing a number of other

bird species in and around

the estuary a black-backed

gull management strategy

is currently under review.

Watch this space.

How can we help prevent

these birds from taking over the

estuary? Please do not encourage

these birds to stay here by

making it just too easy for them

by feeding bread or left-over fish

and chips near the estuary.

Harnessing creativity

from recycled ‘junk’

Myriad groups

help keep our

community moving.

Reporter Bea

Gooding speaks

to Creative Junk

co-ordinator

Christine Jackson

about the

importance of

sustainable creativity

What does Creative

Junk do, and how did

it come to be what it is

today?

Originally set up in

1981, we service a demand

for affordable materials

that are used to promote

creative, imaginative

play and events in the

community — for

children, their families,

artists, designers, crafters,

cosplayers, wearable art,

early childhood services,

schools and a variety of

other organisations.

Our motto — Recycle,

Reuse, Rethink — reflects

the organisation’s ideals

and its ethical and

environmental stance.

We are now looking to

expand our outreach to

more actively embrace the

environmental side of our

values

What are the issues that

your charity is currently

facing, and what is being

done to overcome them?

Our biggest issue at

present is funding, it’s been

affected nationwide for

everyone by the Covid-19

crisis, so we here at

Creative Junk are trying

to become more selfsupporting.

We have our “spare parts

boxes” which raises money

for us, with schools or

anyone wanting creative

goods all over the country,

these boxes are posted to

them. We have also held

open days, sip ’n’ craft

nights and car boot sales.

A local Lego group has

also stepped forward and

provided displays in our

upstairs space and charged

a gold coin donation to

view as a fundraising

event for us, as some of

the builders use materials

from our warehouse to

create landscapes for their

displays.

Another issue would be,

not enough people know

about us. Ideally, we would

like to employ another

person to assist with the

co-ordinator in being able

to get out to schools and

other groups to learn about

Creative Junk. Also to go

out to businesses educate

them, what we can use

instead of things going to

landfill.

Why is an organisation

like this important

for Christchurch in

terms of sustainability

and providing creative

resources?

We help businesses

and local people reduce

the amount of products

going into landfill, which

is currently a big problem

in Christchurch. We are

constantly connecting

with new companies who

have what they thought

was “rubbish” but we see

as products to turn into

useful creative items. Our

workshops also help to

educate children that they

can look around their own

homes and find things

to be creative with that

mum or dad was going to

throw away, and that’s the

most important step in

sustainability - education.

Creative Junk is unique

and is important to all of

New Zealand.

What impact has

Creative Junk had on

groups who benefit from

the service?

We work with Ara, The

Repair Shed, The children’s

university, UCA, Learning

Exchange Timebank,

Otautahi Christchurch

Creative Spaces, Skillwise

retraining, Waitaha School

and Volunteer Canterbury

to name but a few over our

39 years of being in the

community.

We have been able

to provide classes with

In what ways can

creativity?

The best way is to think

of a way to repurpose an

item before they consider

disposing of it. For

a golf club can be fixed to
