Weather Warning for Waitomo
Waitomo District is expecting a significant amount of rainfall over the next few days. Once again, this will likely have a major impact on our roads and farmland. We ask residents to please take caution and do not venture out into the weather if you do not need to. And if possible, move stock to higher ground.
Surface flooding and excess water may also slow the drainage of the stormwater and wastewater network. We are not expecting any significant impact to the network, water will just take a little longer to drain.
We will keep you updated as information comes to hand.
Stay safe.

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

26 Sep 2014, 2:14 PM

The year 7 students from the Piopio College social studies class contacted me about projects to help save the environment. The students wanted to find out more about how they could recycle better in their school and asked me to help them get started.

With this in hand, I set up an appointment with the group’s teacher Ms. Marriott and had a good discussion with them…

Kobus du Toit meets with students to talk about ways to recycle in school 

We talked about Recycle, Reduce and Re-use and how the environment can benefit from these initiatives. It is always inspiring to see the youth getting involved in projects like this in order to create a better and greener tomorrow.

Thank you for meeting with me Piopio College and all the best with your Waste minimisation project.

Waitomo District Council would be delighted to hear from other schools in the district that are working on similar projects. We can provide information or assistance to support you in your waste minimisation efforts.
