This note is provided as a reminder to Members to review the matters on the agenda and assess and identify where they may have a pecuniary or other conflict of interest, or where there may be a perception of a conflict of interest.

If a Member feels they do have a conflict of interest, they should publicly declare that at the start of the meeting or of the relevant item of business and refrain from participating in the discussion or voting on that item.

8            Information Reports

8.1         Compactor for public Rubbish Disposal

File Number:           A3775632

Author:                    Simon Millichamp, Solid Waste Engineer

Authoriser:             Andy Finch, General Manager - Infrastructure and Asset Management

 

TAKE PŪRONGO / Purpose of the Report

To provide information on standalone solar power rubbish compactors to receive bagged rubbish in public places.

WHAKARĀPOPOTO MATUA / Executive SummarY

·    Illegal dumping is common at kerbside collection points and at coastal communities where maritime rubbish is problematic.

·    Illegal dumping sits at these sites for extended periods before collection. It is unsightly and unhygienic.

·    It has been suggested that mobile solar powered rubbish compactors (MRC’s) will alleviate illegal dumping problems.

·    Similar rubbish receptacles have been trialled by FNDC and are currently used by other Councils

·    Capital and maintenance costs for MRC’s are high.

·    All three Councils report that Illegal dumping continues despite the provision of MRC’s and at times becomes worse.

 

 TŪTOHUNGA / Recommendation

That the Bay of Islands-Whangaroa Community Board receive the report Compactor for public Rubbish Disposal .

 

 

 

tĀHUHU KŌRERO / Background

Illegal dumping is common at kerbside collection points and at coastal communities such as Russell where maritime rubbish is problematic.

There are 2 fundamental problems at both these kinds of sites:

1.   Bags placed before collection day sit at these sites for extended periods before collection. Not only is this unsightly, but the bags also attract rats and dogs.

2.   Rubbish placed is often not in pre-paid kerbside bags, so FNDC pays for the cost of disposal

Kerbside Collection Points

Kerbside services are contracted out to private companies. There are no provisions for providing these services in the current solid waste plan or contracts.

Northland Waste Ltd and Waste Management Ltd provide user pay kerbside services in areas that they select and generally only service roads that are economically viable. 

Issues developed as residents and others dropped rubbish bags on the nearest road where there was a kerbside service. Unofficial collection points developed because of this.

Council has some control over limited aspects of these services through the Solid Waste Bylaw Public consultation was carried out in the development of the bylaw and as a result, approved collection points were established with the relevant waste companies being responsible for:

•        erecting signage that clearly informs public when to place waste for collection (in response to bags being dumped at the end of roads with no collection service) and 

•        clearing collection points within four days of rubbish being reported including illegally dumped black bags.

Despite this, problems continue as rubbish is regularly dropped at collection points outside of the specified times resulting in an almost constant pile of waste at some collection points.

Coastal Communities that service people who live aboard boats.

People who live aboard boats often have no way of getting to a refuse transfer station so sometimes resort to dumping rubbish illegally around wharves and boat ramps where they come ashore. This is a problem at both wharves that service commercial fishers such as Pukenui and Whangaroa, as well as those wharves that service live aboard holiday makers such as Opua and Russell.

Some of this dumping is in pre-paid kerbside bags but the majority is in generic black bags.

Contractors engaged by FNDC pick up this illegal dumping as they service nearby litter bins or in response to complaints from the public. It is difficult to identify offenders as this sort of rubbish doesn’t generally contain addressed envelopes or other personal details.

MATAPAKI ME NGĀ KŌWHIRINGA / Discussion and Next Steps

It has been suggested that mobile solar powered rubbish compactors (MRC’s) will alleviate illegal dumping problems at kerbside collection points and at coastal communities.

MRC’s are approximately the size of a 20 ft shipping container (6m x1.5m X 2m) and are made up of 2 units:

1.   a solar powered compactor unit that accepts bagged rubbish through a coin or EFTPOS operated loading chute.

2.   a detachable rubbish pod that the rubbish is compacted into.

MRC’s provide a means to store rubbish safely and relatively hygienically as well as a means for visitors to pay for rubbish without the need to purchase prepaid bags.

FNDC has used a similar coin operated rubbish container in the past at Rawhiti to cater for the rubbish from holiday makers living aboard boats in the Bay of Islands as well as campers staying on Urupukapuka. There were numerous problems. Many people simply didn’t pay and left their rubbish next to the unit. The loading chute would often become jammed as people tried to cram as much rubbish in it as possible to get the maximum value for money. It was expensive to send technicians out to un-jam the loading chute. While the MRC was jammed, the public has no option but to dump rubbish beside it.

Dhanya Anthraper, Solid Waste Engineer, Thames-Coromandel District Council reports that “they generally work well when they are not misused …. Common materials we see that jam/block the machines includes fishing nets, air mattresses, timber, foam, camping squabs, metals rods, soft plastics, blankets/duvets. This then requires us sending a technician to unblock the machine and then reset it, which means other customers cannot use the machine until it is fixed…… The other issues we experience include the machine being vandalised when people try to steal the money or the solar power panels.”

Excerpt from Stuff article January 2019

They are meant to cut down on the mountains of trash created by Coromandel holidaymakers.

Instead, a collection of portable rubbish compactors strategically positioned in busy spots around the peninsula are attracting huge piles of trash dumped by campers unable or unwilling to make use of the machines.

The solar powered, coin-operated devices only cost $2 per load and any large bag of rubbish placed inside gets swiftly squished down to size once it is activated.

In spite of the low cost, people seem to have balked at the prospect of shelling out anything at all to reduce their waste footprint - much to the dismay of staff at the Thames Coromandel District Council.”

Whangarei District Council has a similar unit located at Parua Bay and is encountering similar problems to those outlined above - blockages due to customers trying to deposit inappropriate volumes and items as well as rubbish piled up around the unit. David Lindsay, Solid Waste Engineer, Whangarei District Council says the success of MRC depends on locating the unit close to service technicians to clear blockages and ensuring the MRC is under surveillance. He is currently looking to relocate the MRC away from Parua Bay due to complaints from local residents.

PĀNGA PŪTEA ME NGĀ WĀHANGA TAHUA / Financial Implications and Budgetary Provision

Watson Engineering who manufactured both Whangarei District Council and Thames-Coromandel District Councils’ MRC have provided an estimate of $61,000 (+GST) per unit (1 x Compactor unit and 1 x Pod combination) for a multiple order of 3 or more. Watson Engineering are not willing to manufacture MRC’s for lease.

Operational costs are more difficult to estimate as they depend on MRC location and the resulting cost to send specialist trucks to empty the pods. In low to medium use areas, pods may have to be emptied before they are full due to odour issues. Northland Waste has given an indicative cost of $520 to send a hook truck from their depot in Waipapa to swap out a rubbish pod in Russell. This doesn’t include disposal costs. Also note that this would result in closing off the MRC for approximately one hour while the pod was away being emptied.  Service costs for technicians to un-jam MRC’s also depends heavily on location and travel time.

 

Neither the purchase of MRC’s or the servicing of MRC’s is provided for under existing budgets and would be an increase in levels of service provided to the community.

8.2         Funding Granted by the Bay of Islands-Whangaroa Community Board 2016-2022 Financial Years

File Number:           A3783477

Author:                    Kathryn Trewin, Funding Advisor

Authoriser:             Ana Mules, Team Leader - Community Development and Investment

 

TAKE PŪRONGO / Purpose of the Report

The Bay of Islands-Whangaroa Community Board requested a break-down of funding provided by subdivision during the current triennium versus the previous triennium.

WHAKARĀPOPOTO MATUA / Executive SummarY

·    The amount of funding granted over the last two triennium increased significantly, with $470,232 granted by the Board between July 2016 and June 2019 and $719,078 granted between July 2019 and June 2022. 

·    The number of applications did not increase significantly, but it is expected that this is primarily because of the effect of Covid-19 on communities, putting projects and events on hold. 

·    It should be noted that funding that was granted and then rescinded is not included in these amounts, as this funding was reallocated by the Board.

·    This report is resubmitted with the further information requested from the Board showing the complete list of funding granted by the Board over the two triennium.

 TŪTOHUNGA / Recommendation

That the Bay of Islands-Whangaroa Community Board receive the report Funding Granted by the Bay of Islands-Whangaroa Community Board 2016-2022 Financial Years.

 

 

tĀHUHU KŌRERO / Background

The Board requested information on funding is has granted over the past triennium.  Information has been provided to allow the Board to compare what was granted in the previous triennium.  Although application numbers are similar across both periods, anecdotal evidence from our communities indicate that application numbers would be higher if not for the impact of Covid-19, which caused a number of events and projects to be delayed or cancelled due to lockdowns and lack of resources and visitors.

It is noted that the full $100,000 Placemaking Funding for the 2021/22 Financial Year has been granted to the placemaking project on the Russell Waterfront.

The attachments to this report show the overall funding by the Board and also provide a breakdown by subdivision.

b)    determine an outcome that meet the following Community Outcomes:

i) Communities that are healthy, safe, connected and sustainable

ii) Proud, vibrant communities

 

1) Background

This petition was received from Rex Wilson on behalf of the 80 signatories on 20 July 2022 via the Far North District Council (FNDC) but was originally requested via a request for service (RFS) with Council on 14 June 2022.

Attached hereto:

a)  a copy of the petition and supportive correspondence from:

·    Rex Wilson – Gold & Gifts

·    Peter Kennedy – Retail Landlord

·    Will Selles – Northland Ltd.

·    Jeanie Mobley – The McIlvride Trust

·    Gillian Campbell – Flying Fish Design Store Ltd.

·    Craig Johnston – Dive NZ

·    Robyn Stent

 

b)  a copy of received correspondence against the petition from:

 

·    Julie Cunningham

 

c)  a copy of the MOU – Focus Paihia FY21-22

 

Council’s petitioning guidelines state that a petition:

·    may be presented to the Council, a Committee or a Community Board.

·    must contain at least 20 signatures and the request must consist of fewer than 150 words (not including signatures).

·    must be received by the Chief Executive (or his representative) at least five working days before the date of the meeting at which it will be presented.

·    must not use offensive language or include malicious statements

·    may be written in English or te reo Māori.

·    may be delivered by electronic means.

Council’s process around petitions currently mean that any petition received will be presented to a formal meeting for endorsement and to raise awareness of potentially larger issues with our elected representatives.

Elected members need to be mindful when making decisions that they have sufficient information to satisfy the following decision-making provisions of the Local Government Act s77-82.

1.   All reasonably practicable options with advantages/disadvantages

2.   The views of the community

3.   Compliance with legislation including Resource Management Act

4.   That the resolution will be consistent with existing policies or plan (if not provided there is an explanation)

5.   That the options take into consideration opportunities for māori engagement and views.

6.   The potential impacts and views of affected persons.

2) DISCUSSION AND OPTIONS

Staff do not undertake any vetting processes. To enable Community Boards to advocate for their communities, petitions with an impact or focus on a particular community will be presented to Community Board’s to formally consider.

In receiving a petition, keeping in mind the decision-making requirements under the Local Government Act, the Board are asked to either:

1.   Endorse the petition and request staff to investigate.

2.   Or simply receive the petition noting the concerns.

Endorsing the petition formally agrees that the issue is a true representation of the concerns, and requests staff to investigate options. In some instances, the options may be straightforward and within staff delegation to action.

In other instances, the matter might require a further report to be prepared to seek resolution.

Receiving a petition doesn’t necessarily mean that the Board doesn’t agree with the petitioner’s request. It might be that it is not a priority at present or that the Board would like to consider it via another process such as their strategic plan, or advocate for community through an external party.

If the Board simply note the petition it is recommended that the Board be clear on the reasoning why, so the minutes provide clear direction back to the petitioners.

Regardless of the Board outcome, if a petition is endorsed by the Community Board progress will be reported back to the Board via their action sheet.

Reason for the recommendation

To allow the community board to formally receive the petition and provide a mechanism for the Board to advocate on behalf of its constituents where appropriate.

3) Financial Implications and Budgetary Provision

There are no financial implications or need for budgetary provision in requesting a report. The report when provided will need to articulate and financial implications in the options including speedbumps.
