Tauranga City Council
Waste Minimisation Officer Liesel Carnie says the furniture
rehoming project was incredibly rewarding.

“Tauranga
City Council’s goal in its demolition of the Willow Street
building is to divert as much waste from landfill as
possible — not just in the demolition, but by giving
unwanted furniture items a second life as work-from-home
equipment for staff and through donation to
charities

“This furniture provides real benefit to
these charities, giving them a leg up in the work they are
doing and enabling them to direct their funds to their
cause,” she says.

Sam Fellows, Council’s
Sustainability and Waste Manager says the project is an
example of Council practising what it preaches.

“We
are really pleased with the results and have exceeded the
diversion rates we initially expected. It’s a fantastic
outcome for our environment and our community.

“Our
proposed Waste Management and Minimisation Plan prioritises
reducing and reusing over recycling, and the Wharf Street
demolition is a great practical example of this in action.
Public feedback on the plan and bylaw is closing soon so we
encourage everyone to check them out online and let us know
what they think,” says Sam.

To provide feedback on
the proposed Waste Management and Minimisation Plan and
Bylaw visit www.tauranga.govt.nz/wmmp
or www.tauranga.govt.nz/waste-bylaw
before Thursday, 7
July.

Spotify has to be one of the most interestingly futile mouse-wheels of 21st century capitalism. Run, run, run goes the Spotify mouse but it never, ever makes a profit. For reasons set out below, it maybe never will. But it won’t be for wont of trying. Reportedly, Spotify’s music library contains 70 million tracks and it adds 60,000 more each day. By some estimates it adds on average, one new track every 1.4 seconds. (No wonder it’s so hard to keep up with new music.) Spotify has 345 million active users, and 155 million of them have been willing to pay a subscription in order to enjoy their music ad-free. Ads are not a major driver of company revenue…
