Canterbury will switch over to digital TV on 28 April. You don't
need to buy a new TV to go digital. However, if you do decide
to upgrade, please dispose of your old TV responsibly.
TVs contain materials, like lead, that are hazardous to the
environment and people's health if they are dumped in
landfills or into the environment, so they should be recycled.
As part of the TV TakeBack programme the Council is being
subsidised by the Ministry for the Environment to provide a
TV recycling service, and the Council will also meet some of
the recycling costs.
The TV Takeback campaign in Selwyn will be run on weekends
from 13 April until 5 May. You will be able to recycle your old
TV at the following locations for free:
Pines Resource Recovery Park (183 Burnham School Road,
Rolleston). Open for TV collection: Saturdays and Sundays --
10am to 4pm
Sicon Yard (2 Ritso Street, Darfield). Open for TV collection:
Saturdays only from 9am to 1pm.
Computer screens are not being accepted as part of the TV

The Community Hall on Hororata Dunsandel Road was damaged in the
September 2010 earthquake. Because it was uneconomic to repair, it was
demolished in 2012. A survey of ratepayers in the Dunsandel-Mead rating
area in 2010, a public meeting in 2011, and submissions to the Long Term
Plan have indicated there is strong support for a new community facility.
A working party consisting of local Dunsandel community representatives
and Selwyn District Council staff has undertaken substantial work together
on the future provision of community facilities in Dunsandel.
Council has now contracted David Allan of Strategic Leisure NZ (specialist
recreation and sport planners) to complete an independent needs analysis
and recommend specifications for the new community facility in Dunsandel.
A drop-in session to hear from interested Dunsandel-Mead ratepayers
about what they think should be catered for in the new facility will be held
on Thursday 18 April from 4.30 -- 6.30pm at the Dunsandel Sports Centre
(Tramway Road, Dunsandel Domain).
There is no need to RSVP. If you can't attend the drop-in session but would
like to provide comments, you can email David Allan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions please contact Keri Harrison, Community Projects
Co-ordinator on 347 2945 or email email@example.com.
