If people keep putting garden waste in the Weed Bin, it will be taken away.
Message from Pest Free Piha: It’s back. The weedbin that is. There’s a new sign too, listing the weeds that can go in the bin, and the material that can’t. PLEASE respect this. We want funding renewed for this bin for the next financial year and we need to convince the board that it will not be abused. Here’s an example – a good pile of tradescantia in the foreground (on the list) but what looks like partly decayed montbretia (not on the list). There’s no need to dispose of montbretia in the bin; it breaks down easy enough and if you’re worried about the bulbs, cut them off and put them in your rubbish bag. Fortunately we covered all this up with a trailer load of ginger, japanese honeysuckle and jasmine.
