Rubbish dumped illegally at schools - It’s been reported by some schools that they have had household rubbish dumped on their grounds. Kaiapoi North School recently had a bag of rubbish and broken glass bottles dumped in their school field, and Swannanoa School have had bags of household rubbish thrown into their scrap metal bins - which they are using to raise funds - and rotten vegetable peelings and other rubbish put into their kerbside recycling bins. Please can residents keep an eye  out for illegal dumpers, record the number plates of offenders, and report them to the Council.
