Investigation after school material dumped

8:43 pm on 2 February 2016

A Ministry of Education contractor is being investigated after being caught dumping unauthorised material from the fire-damaged Hawera Intermediate School.

Routine monitoring by the Taranaki Regional Council found Arthur Brown Construction had been dumping material outside of its consents conditions at a property in Hawera.

The contractor confirmed the material was from the Hawera Intermediate School, which was severely damaged by fire in October last year.

The firm and landowner have been served notices requiring the dumping to stop.
