EYESORE: Residents were riled when a pile of polystyrene was found dumped in the car park in Hayley Lane, off Point View Drive, Howick. Last month, the Times reported on rubbish repeatedly dumped in front of Somerville Kindergarten, Meadowland. Illegally dumped rubbish costs ratepayers millions each year in removal charges, says the Auckland Council. If caught, offenders can be fined $100 for a first offence and up to $400 for a subsequent one within a 365-day period. The council can prosecute under the Litter Act for more serious offences, with a maximum penalty upon conviction of $30,000. VILLAGE VOICE is a free community notice-board for non-pro t groups.
