14 UPPER HUTT LEADER, JULY 13, 2011 LETTERS Company Profle 3650187 Bebans Glass is a family owned and operated business, who prove that experience really does count During the team's 30 years in Upper Hutt, they have built long- lasting relationships and a reputation for excellent service. Noel Beban, who runs the company with his wife Anne, has been a glazier for 46 years. "I served my apprenticeship with G Marshall Ltd, paint glass and wallpaper merchants in 1965. In 1981 I started working for myself out of my garage. For the last 29 years we have been at 30 Camp Street, the rest is history. "We always satisfy our customers, the same people keep coming back and recommend us to family and friends. We have worked with the same Upper Hutt companies for decades." "Our main trade is glass repairs or installation of new glazing, but we do a lot more, Noel says. "We supply and ft mirrors of any size or shape, install glass splash-backs for kitchens and bathrooms, shower screens, glass table-tops, safety glass and double glazing. Bebans Glass has a range of coloured glass for leadlighters and some supplies." From supplying and ftting pet doors to domestic or corporate window installation or repair, no job is too big or small.

It therefore seems crazy to be spending rates on a toxin that can only be disposed of as a biohazard if it loses the label of a product instead of healthy food for the poorest residents who are destined to get fillings. I also suggest readers look into the vitamins A, D, E and K and the minerals phosphorus and calcium if they really care about their teeth. TONI CARSON, Hataitai, Wellington Please inform these well- meaning people within the community to do the research. I did and was absolutely astonished at what I found. As a councillor of the Ruapehu District Council I did the research and now we do not have fluoridated drinking water. If people are concerned get them to buy a bottle of fluoride tablets and read the label carefully. JENI KYDD, Ruapehu District Council Recycling igloos sought I was pretty shocked to learn if you want to recycle bottles and cardboard in Upper Hutt outside the normal day of collection by the council, you will have to pay at the Silverstream Landfill. I thought we were supposed to be a green country, surely we should be able to recycle for free any day you want, how about some bottle and cardboard banks in the industrial areas around Upper Hutt to encourage people?C van VLIERDEN, Trentham Lachlan Wallach, director asset management and operations at UHCC, replies: The writer is correct. If you have items to deposit at Silverstream you will have to pay the landfill fees that are set by Hutt City Council. Some years ago we had recycling igloos around the city but because of the the extremely high maintenance cost caused by abuse, council discontinued the facilities. There are no free systems. All come at a cost either through rates, as for the kerbside collection; or user pays, as at the landfill. Recycling does not pay for itself. Thanks Because of lack of communication with my family each thought the other was picking me up so I waited for at least one hour in the lobby at Hutt Hospital. I must thank the lady in the office downstairs, as she tried her best to contact my family and she showed a lot of caring and empathy; she even rang the taxis to see how much they would charge. Their price was $60 for a 12-minute drive from the hospital to my home in Upper Hutt, which was outrageous. I prayed to God to send someone to take me home. Just as I had finished, this lovely guardian angel whom I didn t know nor did she know me, saw I was distressed and had noticed me waiting there when she came to visit her brother. She was on her way home to Upper Hutt and asked would I like a lift which, of course, I accepted. God bless you and your family, I will never be able to thank you enough. T A CARDNO, Upper Hutt (abridged)
