Poll: Junk Mail

Nick from Mount Eden

Hi All, I've been thinking about other ways to reduce our carbon footprint and targeting junk-mail might be an option. If we think about the amount of ink and paper that is disposed of everyday due to junk mail it seems like a waste of electricity and material. Maybe it's time we restrict junk mail delivery to those that actually want it and those that do not?

Poll: Are you in favour of V-shaped pruning to avoid power lines?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Another Auckland suburb has come under fire for unattractive tree pruning.

Waterview’s Alford St made headlines last week after residents complained the trees had been cut into unsightly V-shapes by Auckland Council contractor Treescape.

Doria Johnson, who lives on Scott Rd in Papakura, said the trees on her road have had the same treatment, from the same contractor.

Every single tree has been cut down the middle to avoid the power lines, she said.

“It’s not just my tree, it's the entire street ... It looks like a nightmare, it's disgusting.”
