ok i'm having a bit of an argument with a mate at the mo. is there some kind of law about having rubbish in your street? for example, last night we went to a party and there were loads of bottles in the street, and some neighbors came out and cleaned it up. is there actually a law regarding this?

there is litter laws in every town this is from palmerston north

ILLEGAL DUMPING OF RUBBISH
The illegal dumping of rubbish or littering of any kind in public places, on roadside and parks and reserves is an offence under the Litter Act 1979. Any person or individual comitting such offence is liable an instant fine of $100, or on prosecution, a fine up to $500.

The Council asks that you report incidents of this nature so that follow up action may be taken. If possible the recording of details such as the date, time, location of the offence, name of offender, witnesses, vehicle registration number will assist in our investigations

If it was me I wouldn't leave rubbish behind me anyway. This is regardless of laws or not.

I hate people throwing down ciggarette butts,

But in Dunedin, they soon get picked up and recycled by the homeless and down-and-outs

Okay you two, let it go. Put away the flamethrowers and the poison keyboards.
Nothing to see here, cows catch fire every day.

What are you on about Robo? Polly is a close friend of mine, and we are having a little fun at each other. Since when is that classed as a flame war.
I am going for a drive in the country this weekend to see some of these cows that catch fire daily. E-By-Gum
