Home owners who are planning to go
on holiday this summer can adopt
some simple measures to help protect
their properties from burglars.
ADT Armourguard general manager
Ian Anderson says trends for his
organisation show that summer
months, especially December and
January, are the busiest times for
home alarm call outs.
Many thieves see the summer as an
opportune time for illegal behaviour,''
End-of-year celebrations and sum-
mer gatherings mean that a lot of
people find themselves away from
home more often than usual.
This unfortunately provides
opportunities for unwelcome visitors,
so it's important that home owners
remain vigilant and take time to care-
fully evaluate home security
Nobody wants to return home from
a relaxing break to find their house
has been broken into.''
The best defence against burglary is
prevention and planning, and gener-
ally making a home unappealing to
burglars, Ian says.
The following tips can help keep

the coming months:

your rubbish on collection day or

house, clearing flyers, mail and
packages left in front entrances and
mailboxes, occasionally parking their
car in your driveway or in front of your

Never hide spare keys in mailboxes,

glars know most of the hiding places.

Water disruption for two nights
Water supplies to Kawakawa and
Moerewa may be temporarily
reduced on two nights this week
as the Far North District Council
investigates losses in the supply
The work is part of an ongoing
leak detection programme
designed to improve the level of
service on the 40-year-old water
The council started testing last
night and will carry out further
tests tomorrow night from mid-
night to 5am.
Some areas may suffer a tem-
porary loss of service while the
work is carried out.
eDay is a huge success
Fifty pallets of unwanted computers
and electronic appliances won't finish
up in landfills thanks to an e-waste
collection earlier this month.
Items deposited at collection sites in
Kaitaia, Kaikohe and Kerikeri on eDay
included about 350 personal com-
puters, 400 monitors, 270 printers,
scanners and fax machines.
The largest amount of e-waste was
collected in Kerikeri where items filled
29 pallets. Thirteen pallets of e-waste
were collected in Kaitaia and nine
pallets were collected in Kaikohe.
Nationwide, 77,000 computer and
computer-related items were collected
-- the biggest haul of electronic waste
since the first eDay three years ago.
eDay is an annual event that allows
people to safely dispose of unwanted
electronic appliances that can contami-
nate soil and waterways if dumped at
It is co-ordinated by a national com-
munity trust set up to reuse as much
of the material as possible.
