    Rubbish spilling out of a state house in West Auckland is blocking a footpath and one nearby resident says the eyesore has become a health and safety hazard

    Rubbish spilling out of a state house in West Auckland is blocking a footpath and one nearby resident says the eyesore has become a health and safety hazard


    Christine McKeen told the Herald she saw one woman pushing a pram having to go onto the busy road to get around the waste, and says it's just a matter of time until someone gets hurt

    The Kainga Ora house is on Universal Drive in Henderson.

    McKeen said she complained to Auckland Council early this year and they originally told her the tenant had been told they had two weeks to get rid of the waste or they would be taken to court.

    But nearly a month later and there is even more rubbish there than before.

    An email from an Auckland Council representative to McKeen said: "Housing New Zealand should take responsibility, speak to their tenant and ask him to keep the area clean and tidy."
