By Mike Houlahan
On Monday Dunedin City Council adopted a policy of charging for handling Official Information Act requests. Section 13 of the legislation already provides a charging mechanism. Council has now formalised that into a policy, where the first three hours processing will be free, while subsequent time can be charged at $38 per half hour.

Extra bin recommended (page 4)
By Wilma McCorkindale
An extra bin, probably yellow, is the only major recommended change to Dunedin City Council’s kerbside rubbish and recycling collection.

By Rose Etherington
Seoul design studio Unplug Design have designed an aid package that can be made into a football by children in developing countries. Called Dreamball, the object consists of a cylindrical container for the delivery of aid packages, which the children can roll to where it will be needed instead of having to carry it. Paper around this container is printed with a pattern that can be used to make balls of different sizes.
