When you dispose of recyclable materials, it’s important you sort it properly, so we’ve outlined what to do with a wide range of items. Throwing rubbish in with your recycling means the whole bin is contaminated, and may contaminate a whole truckload. This means the truckload may not be able to be recycled, and will have to go to landfill.
Council are running a park-based station for recycling your waste while you’re out and about. This trial is being run at Te Uruhi/Maclean Park in Paraparaumu, from January 2020 until April 2021.
