Response from David:
As Russell does not have bins that are taken away by the council, the residents and guests of Russell have to take their rubbish to the transfer station and all have to pay a small fee. The $10 standard charge would have been put by the caretaker if you are unable to take it, to cover the costs of taking the rubbish to the station for her time and to cover the cost of the rubbish. We are really sorry that this has happened. We have passed on your feedback to the caretaker so we can get these issues addressed that you have stated.

Very nice view of the Bay of Islands. It's a cute home overlooking the water with a nice table on the front patio. Perfect location in Russell.
