THE best way to solve the slippery problem without trudging to the dump
is to make the most of the various waste options that Action Rubbish Bins
provides. Linda and John Hogan have added another dimension to their
extensive refuse service, with a "Green Waste Only" option, which runs in
conjunction with their mixed-waste refuse service.
"As more people are wishing to utilise a green-waste-only bin system,
we have introduced the 140 litre and 240 litre green-waste bins with a
fortnightly collection. These bins will be emptied on a Tuesday from your
kerbside. The Green Waste Only option gives their clients more choices
with disposing of their rubbish, and also caters for those who wishing to
recycle more," Linda says.
They have a variety of wheelie bins available for mixed-waste refuse,
and either weekly or fortnightly collections with payment plans to suit most
"The convenience of having a wheelie bin is an affordable option for
many households, letting people not worry about their refuse and allowing
them to get on with things that are more important, like spending quality
time with family, friends and playing sport."
The Green Waste Only service is available in central Hastings, central
Napier through to Taradale, whilst the mixed waste service is available in
Hastings, Havelock North, Frimley, Flaxmere, Whakatu, Clive, Maraekakaho,
Napier, Taradale and Bay View.

Pilots will be offered tips on how to avoid, and
survive, emergency landings at a free seminar at
the Hawke s Bay & East Coast Aero Club at Hast-
ings Aerodrome this Thursday night.
The Civil Aviation Authority says that private
pilots who fly single-engine aircraft, and who do
not fly very often, are most likely to need to carry
out an emergency landing, which often occur when
pilots run out of daylight, strike bad weather, or
do not carry enough fuel.
The association says that most emergency
landings turn out well, with no damage or injury,
but too many end in preventable accidents.
While every pilot learns how to carry out emerg-
ency landings as part of their training, it is a
seldom-used skill and this Thursday night s free
AvKiwi safety seminar will give pilots advice on
how to maintain control of their aircraft all the
way to the ground in such an event.
The Hastings seminar will be held on Thursday,
June 16, 7pm at the Hawke's Bay & East Coast Aero
Hot soak gets luxury treatment
the features of
new luxury bath
at last Friday's
Cranford Hospice patients can now enjoy
a good pampering in a luxurious new
bath, recently installed with funds cour-
tesy of the Weem Trust.
The state-of-the-art bath comes
equipped with a sidedoor to enable easy
access for elderly or frail patients; has jet
streams like a jacuzzi; can be tilted for-
ward and back and moved up or down by
a hand-held control; and even has a fold
out table for patients to enjoy a glass of
bubbles when they bathe.
Patients at Cranford will be able to
indulge, and that s so important, says
Helen Blaxland, Cranford s General
This facility will mean so much to our
patients, not only from a pain relief, but
also from a pampering perspective. The
Weem Trust have made this possible and
we are so grateful to them, she said.
Local firm Oak Construction helped
out with installing the bath and
upgrading the entire bathroom, which
now has music piped in to add to
In another recently completed upgrade,
Masterbuilders had provided $3800
towards the refurbishing of Cranford s
Family Room, which had been decorated
with new drapes bought with funds from
Sylvia Gee s annual Christmas Cakes
This sort of support is fundamental to
who we are, and to the community spirit
that we rely so much upon, Ms Blaxland
Sylvia Gee, Leonora McCormack from
the Weem Trust, and Ian Welch from
Masterbuilders, were among the guests
at a morning tea put on by Cranford last
Friday to unveil the new bath and room.
