Bins, charity boxes part of<br />

rubbish system review<br />

KERBSIDE BIN sizes and<br />

issues caused by dumping<br />

rubbish outside of charity boxes<br />

are under review.<br />

Consultation opened this<br />

week on the proposed Draft<br />

Waste Management and<br />

Minimisation Bylaw 2<strong>02</strong>3<br />

bylaw, which allows regulation<br />

of all waste collection services<br />

and operations.<br />

Currently the city council<br />

has two waste bylaws – the<br />

Waste Management Bylaw 2009<br />

and the Cleanfill and Waste<br />

Handling Operations Bylaw<br />

2015.<br />

City council resource recovery<br />

manager Ross Trotter said the<br />

current bylaws were legally due<br />

for review in 2<strong>02</strong>5.<br />

“However, we decided to<br />

review them sooner to ensure<br />

they remain fit for purpose.<br />

Following the review we<br />

decided to replace the two<br />

existing bylaws with the<br />

proposed new one,” he said.<br />

“The new bylaw is consistent<br />

with recent changes to<br />

regulations under the Waste<br />

Minimisation Act and our<br />

climate resilience strategy. It<br />

will also assist in achieving<br />

our Waste Management and<br />

Minimisation Plan 2<strong>02</strong>0,<br />

including the goal to move<br />

towards zero waste.”<br />

Trotter said the proposed<br />

changes will provide greater<br />

flexibility. “Some of the<br />

proposed changes will legally<br />

enable us to adapt our services<br />

easier in the future.”<br />

Long queue as fuel price drops<br />

• By Nathan Morton<br />

A WIGRAM petrol station<br />

was swamped with fuel-thirsty<br />

drivers desperate to cash in on<br />

a considerably low price at its<br />

pump.<br />

Gull petrol, commonly known<br />

as a cheaper petrol alternative,<br />

advertised 91 petrol for $2.14 a<br />

litre on Friday.<br />

It’s a price that saw more<br />

than 50 cars at a time swarm<br />

the station over the morning,<br />

queuing up on the grass bank<br />

behind the station to save<br />

money.<br />

Tank fillers at the pumps<br />

said it was the lowest many had<br />

seen petrol cost in their city<br />

since a global price hike due to<br />

the ongoing war in Ukraine.<br />

“It’s incredible, it’s the<br />

lowest I’ve seen in a while –<br />

definitely more than a year,” one<br />

filler said.<br />

“I’d just partially filled up my<br />

tank yesterday, but I drove past<br />

and saw the price this morning<br />

and just had to get more.”<br />

Despite the clamouring of<br />

cars, wait times didn’t last for<br />

longer than 10 minutes for most.<br />

One local brought a portable<br />

petrol drum, spending a few<br />

hundred dollars as he filled it to<br />

the brim after giving his car a<br />

full tank of gas.<br />

“It’s usually quite busy at this<br />

station, but it’s just crazy here at<br />

the moment,” he said.<br />

“The price is probably the<br />

lowest I’ve seen in the last year<br />

at least.”<br />

The low price was a result of<br />

Gull running a 10c discount<br />

across their network.<br />

The queue was even worse at<br />

the Gull station the previous<br />

night – when the promotion<br />

kicked off.<br />

However, data from Gaspy<br />

CHEAP: Gull<br />

dropped the<br />

price of 91 to<br />

$2.14 a litre<br />

at its Wigram<br />

station.<br />

PHOTOS:<br />

NZME<br />

New Zealand – a petrol app<br />

comparing prices across the<br />

country – shows while the<br />

pricing was comparatively good,<br />

other Kiwis still had it better off.<br />

The app’s director Mike<br />

Newton said the Wigram station<br />

pricing “wasn’t exceptional in a<br />

nationwide context”.<br />

In March, the Government cut<br />

25 cents a litre from fuel taxes<br />

and halved the cost of public<br />

transport tickets in response to a<br />

spike in the cost of fuel.<br />

This subsidy was extended<br />

in the Government Budget for<br />

May, and extended again after<br />

that – it was due to expire at the<br />

end of this month.<br />

wanted on<br />

rubbish bylaw<br />

•From page 1<br />

The main changes in the new<br />

bylaw could include:<br />

•The ability for residents to<br />

opt out and not pay for kerbside<br />

collection services in certain<br />

circumstances.<br />

•More flexible rules for kerbside<br />

collection services.<br />

•New requirements for<br />

waste management plans in<br />

some circumstances so waste<br />

is managed more effectively,<br />

including for multi-unit residential<br />

developments, demolition and<br />

construction activities, and large<br />

scale events.<br />

•New rules to address the problems<br />

caused by unaddressed mail<br />

and advertising material and deal<br />

with nuisance from litter, including<br />

litter around donation boxes for<br />

clothing and household goods.<br />

•Allowing the city council to set<br />

standards for the collection points<br />

for recycling and diverted materials.<br />

•Revised provisions to support<br />

the diversion of materials<br />

from landfill and ensure all<br />

waste materials are disposed of<br />

appropriately.<br />

•Amendments to the licensing<br />

requirements for waste operators.<br />

•Consultation on the<br />

changes will close on<br />

<strong>February</strong> 26. For more<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Free Wi-Fi<br />

has reached a major milestone<br />

with more than 100,000<br />

connections from locals and<br />

visitors.<br />

Fibre broadband provider<br />

Enable and the city council<br />

launched the service last July<br />

as part of the city’s economic<br />

development and tourism<br />

strategies – providing a highquality,<br />

free wi-fi service that is<br />

key for any smart 21st century<br />

city.<br />

Developing Christchurch<br />

and ensuring the city meets<br />

the needs of residents and<br />

visitors through internet<br />

connectivity is also a<br />

high priority for the city<br />

council.<br />

“With summer here and the<br />

Buskers Festival in full swing,<br />

it’s been lovely to see locals and<br />

tourists alike making use of<br />

this fantastic free service while<br />

they enjoy everything the<br />

central city has to offer,” said<br />

city council chief executive<br />

Dawn Baxendale.<br />

This summer, nearly 90<br />

cruise vessels are scheduled for<br />

the new cruise berth facility<br />

at Lyttelton, and Christchurch<br />

Airport is expecting the<br />

busiest summer in two years –<br />

and this is just the beginning<br />

as the city rebounds post-<br />

Covid.<br />

“The launch of Christchurch<br />

Free Wi-Fi last year coincided<br />

with borders reopening to<br />

international travellers, so to<br />

see the central city bustling<br />

with visitors and having them<br />

able to access fast, reliable,<br />

and free<br />

internet has<br />

been exciting<br />

to see,”<br />

Enable chief<br />

commercial<br />

officer David<br />

Cooper<br />

David<br />

Cooper<br />

said.<br />

Numbers<br />

show tourists<br />

are making the most of the<br />

wi-fi service. There has been<br />

a more than 40 per cent<br />

increase in connections and<br />

substantially increased usage<br />

(Mb/s) on the days cruise<br />

ships had excursions into the<br />

city.<br />

“Christchurch has so much<br />

to offer, and to see visitors<br />

showcasing the city centre<br />

to their family and friends<br />

back home through our free<br />

service is exactly what we were<br />

envisioning,” said Cooper.<br />

“We’re excited to see<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

connection numbers continue<br />

to increase as tourists come to<br />

explore our city, and as locals<br />

make the most of the summer<br />

calendar with events such as<br />

the Bread & Circus World<br />

Buskers Festival taking place<br />

right now throughout the city<br />

centre.”<br />

The free wi-fi service<br />

extends from the Bridge of<br />

Remembrance and along<br />

Oxford Tce to Victoria Square,<br />

across to Colombo St and<br />

back down Colombo St to the<br />

Lichfield St corner.<br />

Thursday <strong>February</strong> 2 2<strong>02</strong>3 5<br />

Using less water encouraged during heatwave<br />

PEOPLE ARE being urged to<br />

reduce their water use with hot<br />

and dry conditions forecast for<br />

the coming weeks.<br />

Water demand in Christchurch<br />

is increasing, and at peak times<br />

there’s already pressure on the<br />

water supply network.<br />

Said city<br />

council head<br />

of three<br />

waters Helen<br />

Beaumont: “In<br />

previous<br />

Helen<br />

Beaumont<br />

years we’ve<br />

seen extreme<br />

pressure on the<br />

Christchurch<br />

water supplies when<br />

temperatures have increased,<br />

and we’re expecting that could<br />

happen again in the coming days<br />

and weeks.<br />

“To help ease the burden on<br />

our water supply network we’re<br />

asking residents to be extra<br />

mindful of their water use as<br />

temperatures increase.”<br />

She said irrigation systems and<br />

unsupervised sprinklers use a lot<br />

of water.<br />

“To reduce your outdoor water<br />

use we suggest watering for three<br />

to five minutes every second day<br />

with a hose or watering can.<br />

“This is enough to keep plants<br />

in good condition throughout<br />

the hottest months. Watering<br />

early in the morning or after<br />

9pm means the water is absorbed<br />

by the soil instead of evaporated<br />

by the heat.”<br />

HELPING HAND: Conserve water on hot days with these<br />

top tips, including watering the garden in the morning<br />

and doing fast washes.<br />

PHOTOS: GETTY<br />

Beaumont said if water<br />

restrictions are needed later in<br />

the summer, it won’t be because<br />

of the risk of running out of<br />

water; it’ll be to ease the pressure<br />

on the water supply network.<br />

“During hot weather demand<br />

increases dramatically and we<br />

struggle to get enough water<br />

through the pipes and into our<br />

reservoirs. If we can’t keep the<br />

reservoirs filled, water pressure<br />

drops across the network,” she<br />

said.<br />

“Having enough water in the<br />

reservoirs is also essential for<br />

fire-fighting, so pressure on the<br />

water supply network can put us<br />

at risk in emergency situations.<br />

“We’re doing our best to lead<br />

by example and have a leak<br />

detection programme underway<br />

to reduce the amount of wasted<br />

water leaking from council<br />

pipes.<br />

“We’re also working directly<br />

with commercial and residential<br />

customers with leaks to help get<br />

them sorted and avoid excess<br />

water use charges.”<br />

TOP TIPS<br />

Hold your hoses - Using a<br />

handheld hose to water your<br />

garden gives you more control<br />

and uses a lot less water.<br />

Morning time? Watering<br />

the garden is fine - Plants need<br />

less water when the sun’s not<br />

out and the wind’s died down.<br />

Shorten your shower - Keep<br />

your showers short and sweet.<br />

Use a timer or match the<br />

length of your shower with<br />

your favourite song.<br />

Slow the flow - Older showerheads<br />

often use a lot more<br />

water than needed. Replacing<br />

it with a modern, low flow<br />

showerhead is an easy cost saving<br />

exercise, and you won’t lose<br />

out on water pressure!<br />

Seek the leak - Dripping<br />

taps, showerheads, toilets and<br />

leaky pipes can waste a lot of<br />

water.Seek the leak and read<br />

your water meter.<br />

Be a one-load wonder -<br />

Washing a full load of laundry<br />

is the most water-efficient way<br />

to do your laundry.<br />

Contain the rain -Installing<br />

a rainwater tank is a simple<br />

process and provides another<br />

water source.<br />

It’s written in the starrating<br />

- When buying<br />

appliances, look for those with<br />

the most stars from WELS<br />

(Water Efficiency Labelling<br />

Scheme).<br />

maintenance officer Grant<br />

Matheson has been involved<br />

in selecting all of the plants for<br />

the crevice garden.<br />

Plants have come from<br />

in-house propogation and<br />

reputable nurseries, as well as<br />

gifted by collectors from the<br />

New Zealand Alpine Garden<br />

Society.<br />

reliable source and true to<br />

type,” said Matheson.<br />

“The rock and sand mimics<br />

what you would find in the<br />

wild; we trick the plants into<br />

thinking they’re in a natural<br />

environment.”<br />

The special topography<br />

means they can grow plants<br />

that might otherwise need<br />

to be in a shade house or<br />

green house.<br />

Said Matheson: “We<br />

have sun and shade plants<br />

depending on where the rock<br />

sits. There’s a lot of visual<br />

beauty in the way the rocks<br />

are placed, they do look like a<br />

mountain range in miniature.<br />

“A lot of what we grow are<br />

cushioning plants and we’re<br />

going for a high population of<br />

plants grown closer together<br />

compared to the rock garden.<br />

The resulting visual effect<br />

gives you real bang for your<br />

buck.”<br />

He said it is “humbling”<br />

to hear from international<br />

visitors that the crevice and<br />

rock gardens are footing<br />

it with the best municipal<br />

gardens on offer globally.<br />

ATHLETES FROM across<br />

New Zealand descended on<br />

Corsair Bay on Sunday for the<br />

Canterbury Classic Triathlon and<br />

Duathlon.<br />

Environment Canterbury and<br />

independent water quality testing<br />

leading up to the event – which<br />

doubled as the South Island age<br />

group championships – showed<br />

no contamination in the bay,<br />

giving the Canterbury Triathlon<br />

Club the confidence to proceed,<br />

race director John <strong>News</strong>om said.<br />

“It’s well known that you<br />

should not go open swimming<br />

for 24 to 48 hours at any venues<br />

after heavy rain where there<br />

may be storm water run-off. In<br />

the last five years, there have<br />

only been eight tests showing<br />

contamination in Corsair Bay<br />

and six of them are linked to<br />

testing done directly after rain,”<br />

<strong>News</strong>om said.<br />

A wide variety of races were<br />

held, including the aquathon<br />

(swim-run) for children aged 5-9<br />

and the main Olympic distance<br />

triathlon and duathlon, where<br />

the hilly route to Orton Bradley<br />

and back was covered by the<br />

cycle leg before a punishing run<br />

around the trails and footpaths<br />

between Corsair Bay and<br />

Lyttelton. Saxon Morgan and<br />

Brea Roderick won the Olympic<br />

triathlon while Sam Anderson<br />

Diversely delicious Buddha bowls<br />

To have a healthy body we<br />

need a diet of different<br />

foods. Hagar Ozri gets<br />

creative with Buddha<br />

bowls, an easy way to<br />

bring your ingredients<br />

together for a taste delight<br />

Job’s tears, shiitake and<br />

tofu Buddha bowl with<br />

tamari and ginger sauce<br />

Ingredients<br />

1 cup Job’s tears<br />

200g block of tofu (firm or soft,<br />

but not silky tofu)<br />

1 packet of sliced dried shiitake<br />

or 8 whole fresh — sliced, (2<br />

mushrooms per serve)<br />

1 broccoli, divided into florets<br />

3cm finger of fresh ginger<br />

Fresh coriander<br />

Tamari (wheat-free naturally<br />

brewed soy sauce)<br />

Sprouts (Mung bean, alfalfa,<br />

broccoli or pea sprouts)<br />

Chilli (optional)<br />

Directions<br />

To cook Job’s tears, place in a<br />

medium-sized pot, rinse in cold<br />

water then toast the grains in the<br />

pan, top up with water at least<br />

1cm above the grains and bring<br />

to the boil with the lid on.<br />

Once boiling, turn heat to<br />

med/low (check that it is not too<br />

low, so the grain is still cooking).<br />

Continue to cook on low for 40-<br />

ORGANIC: To prepare the Buddha bowls, cook and chop<br />

all the different components and ingredients in advance<br />

then put it all together. PHOTOS: GERARD O’BRIEN<br />

50 minutes until the grains are al<br />

dente.<br />

To prepare the tofu, take the<br />

tofu out of its packet, drain the<br />

water, wrap in a tea towel and set<br />

aside.<br />

Prepare the marinade by<br />

combining ⅓ cup of water, ⅓<br />

cup tamari soy sauce, 4 slices of<br />

fresh ginger and 1 clove garlic.<br />

Cut the tofu into cubes and<br />

shallow-fry in a hot pan. When<br />

crispy on all sides pop tofu into<br />

the marinade while still hot.<br />

Drain the shiitake, conserving<br />

the water, and place in the pan<br />

you used for the tofu. Add the<br />

soak-water a little at a time,<br />

keeping the mushrooms covered.<br />

Cook until tender and set aside.<br />

Prepare the sauce by using the<br />

marinade from the tofu, whisk it<br />

with a little sesame oil.<br />

Dry-roast sunflower seeds,<br />

pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds<br />

for toppings.<br />

Cut the broccoli into<br />

individual florets, steam, and set<br />

aside.<br />

Now assemble the Buddha<br />

bowl. First place the grain on<br />

the bottom of the bowl and pile<br />

it a little more in one half of the<br />

bowl so it is visible when all<br />

other ingredients are added.<br />

Place the broccoli next to<br />

the mound of grain, then place<br />

the tofu and shiitake. Top with<br />

sprouts and the seeds, drizzle<br />

with some sauce, saving some<br />

extra to top-up as you eat at the<br />

table.<br />

Broad bean and millet<br />

Buddha bowl with harissa<br />

tahini sauce<br />

Ingredients<br />

1 cup hulled millet<br />

⅔ cup broad beans – shelled<br />

and steamed<br />

⅔ cup steamed edamame<br />

⅛ cup olive oil<br />

1 tomato cubed, 1 avocado<br />

peeled and cubed, ½ red onion<br />

thinly sliced. Mix and season<br />

with olive oil, salt and pepper.<br />

2 Tbsp tahini<br />

1 Tbsp of lemon juice<br />

½ tsp salt<br />

1 tsp harissa<br />

Some fresh basil, chopped<br />

Directions<br />

Cook the millet: Place in a<br />

medium sized saucepan, cover<br />

with water (1cm over the grain)<br />

and bring to the boil. Turn the<br />

heat down and simmer with the<br />

lid tilted until water has been<br />

soaked up. Turn heat off, place<br />

the lid on and set aside for 10<br />

minutes.<br />

Mix the edamame and broad<br />

beans with a little olive oil and<br />

salt and pepper.<br />

To make the sauce, place<br />

tahini and lemon juice and<br />

salt in a small bowl, add ⅛ cup<br />

water and whisk to make a<br />

paste. Keep adding spoonfuls of<br />

water to create a smooth sauce<br />

consistency.<br />

Add the harissa and taste –<br />

add salt if needed.<br />

Assemble the bowl, starting<br />

with the millet. Add the beans<br />

on one side and the avocado and<br />

tomato salad on the other. Top<br />

with tahini sauce and sprinkle<br />

with fresh basil.<br />

Who can you trust with your hearing?<br />

Hearing loss can creep up on you very<br />

gradually, quite often over several years.<br />

The first signs of this are often a reduction<br />

in speech clarity, or difficulties conversing<br />

with people in social situations, such as a<br />

restaurant or family gathering. Other early<br />

signs are ringing in the ears (tinnitus) or a<br />

gradual increase in your TV volume level.<br />

These issues can be very frustrating, and<br />

are quite often first noticed by your family.<br />

Hear Again have extensive experience of<br />

helping to overcome hearing difficulties.<br />

From a simple check to see if your ears<br />

are blocked with wax, to the provision and<br />

highly personalized fine tuning of the very<br />

latest hearing devices; the professional,<br />

friendly team are here to help, even if you<br />

need to be seen on a weekend.<br />

We take the time to listen to you and do<br />

everything at your pace. There is a reason<br />

we have so many 5 star Google reviews.<br />

Come have a chat with us at The Hub,<br />

418 Main South Road, Hornby, next to<br />

Japan Mart from Monday to Saturday.<br />
