Lifestyle Our Work People News Kimberley Hope standing infront of a Christmas Tree holding a food scraps bin Top Tips For a Zero Waste Holiday This Summer 06 December 2019 Summer is here and it’s time to relax, get out the jandals, get your tickets to Ben Harper at the Bowl and sort out the pressies for Christmas. My job is to help NPDC and our District’s journey to Zero Waste 2040, and this is the perfect time for some great Zero Waste summer tips to help you go green over the holiday. Yule help our environment There’s one way to cut down what we throw away: don’t buy it in the first place! Going Zero Waste is all about the three Rs: reducing, reusing and recycling. Reducing can be as simple as taking some time to think if you need to buy it. If it’s a must-have for Christmas, think about good quality, reusable and recyclable materials, and how you can reduce packaging. My top tip is to carefully remove wrapping paper and then use it again for birthdays and next Christmas. Avoid metallic wrapping paper, which isn’t recyclable. You could even wrap presents in material with a ribbon – it’s old-school but cool, and great for our environment. The right recycling stuff As Kermit the Frog once said, it’s not easy being green. Even with the best intentions, it’s hard not to have a pile of wrapping paper and opened boxes on Christmas morning. Recycling is a key part of our journey to Zero Waste and you can help with that by checking the right stuff is going into the yellow-topped recycling bin. If the wrong stuff goes in, it can’t be recycled and goes to the landfill. My tip is to use the NPDC Recycling and Rubbish app. Download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store today - it’s got a quick and easy to use recycling guide. Or check out the recycling guide on our website. Food for thought Our new food scraps bins are proving to be a fantastic way to divert waste from going to landfill. We’re shifting 60% of our kerbside waste away from the landfill and into the recycling stream – up 40% from before the new collection service started at the end of September. Going hand in hand with Christmas is enjoying fine food with family and friends, and many of us fill our fridges for the festive feasts. We think everyone can still eat well but perhaps don’t go overboard when stocking up for Christmas and New Year. While we are able to compost all food waste, it’s even better to use all our food and not have to throw anything away. Try some great leftover recipes from Love Food Hate Waste. Keep our place perfect Our corner of Aotearoa is pretty special and we all want it to stay that way. Keep an eye out for the colourful bins we’ve installed at many of our favourite summer hangout spots like Brooklands Zoo, the Aquatic Centre and Ngamotu and Oakura beaches, which have compostable, recycling and landfill bins. We get around 125,000 visitors to our stunning Pukekura Park each summer for the TSB Festival of Lights and we’ll have ‘Zero Waste Stations’ again to help keep our park waste-free. The bins will also be at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands for Kiwi legends Six60 on 1 February and Ben Harper on 21 February. Only leave your footprints Our region’s beaches are packed each summer as locals and an increasing number of visitors enjoy the surf and chillax on our black sand beaches. Have a great time but leave only footprints! My tip is to bring a reusable container or reusable bag with you to put all your rubbish in. If you’re bringing a picnic, opt for reusable items and separate your waste into food scraps, recycling or landfill so you can easily dispose of it when you get home. If you want to do more, carry out a mini beach clean-up with your own bag – our oceans will thank you for it! Don’t forget to take care if you head into the sea and stay sunsmart by wearing a hat and slapping on sun lotion. A green future We know the people of our District strongly support our Zero Waste 2040 vision but it’s going to take a lot of hard work on top of the $21.2m we’re investing over the next 10 years to get there. As part of our journey in the year gone, we’ve rolled out a new kerbside food scraps collection service which has so far helped keep about 60% of household rubbish out of the landfill, and trialled a unique roading system which makes asphalt out of hard to recycle plastic containers. In the year ahead we’re looking forward to opening our new reuse and recycling centre, The Junction. It will be developed in stages to become a place for all things Zero Waste, where people can drop-off items for reuse and upcycling, and there will be education programmes and workshops to help us all learn more about how to go Zero Waste. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone. Let’s talk more next year. Kimberley Hope NPDC Manager Resource Recovery

News Mayor Neil Holdom in front of a water reservoir NPDC’s two new reservoirs to give a 36,000 bathtub boost 28 November 2019 The building of two new reservoirs will provide a major boost to the District’s water supply, as work to strengthen drinking water resilience continues, says the New Plymouth District Council (NPDC). Building work on the reservoirs north of New Plymouth kicks off this week and will add 9,000m3 of water storage to the district’s supply from 2022 – that’s about 36,000 full bathtubs. New Plymouth District Mayor Holdom says a recent Berl report showed NPDC’s infrastructure spending was a key economic driver for the district, but more investment in core infrastructure was needed. “We know our people are right behind our work to get our core infrastructure up to scratch, but there’s still a way to go,” says Mayor Holdom. “These two new reservoirs will make a real difference to our drinking water supplies.” It’s estimated the two reservoirs will cost approximately $16-18 million, subject to earthwork and weather variables. They are being built on sites off Henwood and Mountain roads next to existing reservoirs and they will take about two years to complete. Drivers are being asked to cut their speed on sections of Henwood and Manutahi roads due to site traffic. In 2018, NPDC committed an additional $44 million investment in water resilience over the next decade following ex-Cyclone Gita. Part of this money will be used in the new reservoirs projects. Other water resilience projects include $2 million for another water bore and treatment plant upgrades in Ōākura and a $7 million (approximately) project over several years, to improve Inglewood’s drinking water. Drinking water: fast facts Each year we treat about eight million cubic metres of wastewater at the New Plymouth Water Treatment Plant. The plant provides water for 26,000 homes and business from Urenui to Ōmata – that’s about 90 per cent of the water for the whole district. There are 800km of pipes in the New Plymouth District. The district’s main water storage – Lake Māngamāhoe – holds about 10 days’ worth of water. On average we use 292 litres per person every day.

News Our Work Kristian Davies Seventh heaven for Pukekura Park with another Green Flag award 21 November 2019 It’s Kristian Davies’ first year on the job as NPDC’s Pukekura Park curator and he’s already keeping up a world-class tradition.  Mr Davies has led his team to a Green Flag award for the seventh year running. The Green Flag is an international mark of the world’s best parks. “This is a tribute to the hard work of NPDC Parks staff in all weathers and seasons and reflects the dedication that goes into the ongoing development of the park,” said Mr Davies. “Pukekura Park has been the green heart of New Plymouth since 1876 and it’s also a Garden of National Significance and a major draw for visitors and locals alike. The team is keeping it in good shape for future generations.” Pukekura Park is unique in offering a diverse range of landscapes, from remnant native bush, to vast lawn areas and garden displays, and has a world-renowned sports arena. It also includes the TSB Bowl of Brooklands, the Fernery and Display Houses and the popular Brooklands Zoo. The park is set to host the TSB Festival of Lights from 14 December which this year includes 14 new light features. Next year, the Bowl will host A Summer’s Day Disco on 11 January, a sold-out show from Kiwi band Six60 on 1 February, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals on 21 February and WOMAD on 13-15 March. This year, the park underwent a successful trial to desilt its lakes and waterways, using an amphibious dredging vessel imported from Sweden and plans are being drawn up to complete the project over the next two years. Experts assess a park for a Green Flag Award on 27 criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability, community involvement and providing a warm welcome.  Pukekura Park fast facts Pukekura Park covers 52 hectares. It was established in 1876 when lawyer Robert Hughes persuaded Taranaki Provincial Government to buy 12 hectares of wasteland as a recreational reserve. It became known as Pukekura Park (‘red hill’ park) in 1907. Pukekura Park occupies the ‘Mayfair’ or top position in the New Zealand version of Monopoly.
