Over 70% of Whanganui residents surveyed online [743 votes] didn’t want food waste bins in our urban area.
I presented these figures to our councilors with a few of the collective points everyone made. Thank you.
The manual submissions were 160 against and 90 for.
So not only did our online poll have more involvement and written feedback from locals but a similar percentage for both recycling and food waste was made then the longer process.
Food waste bins will be implemented in mid 2024.
One must ask the question? Why did you even ask us?
If you are fed up with not being listened to. Then remember to tick Michael Law for council. I will be running polls and voting based on direct democracy for anything not in my strategy.
