*Unfortunately there have been some significant changes in the recycling market and plastic grades 3, 4, 6 & 7 can no longer be sold and recycled. These plastics, such as takeaway containers, have very little value and are easily contaminated.
We will continue collecting all plastics #1-7 until New Zealand is at Alert Level 1.
After this time please please put only plastic grades 1, 2 & 5 into your yellow mixed recycling bin. These plastic grades have a high value and can easily be recycled to create new products.
If you are unsure what grade a plastic item is, please have a look for the recycling number which should be printed on the bottom of the item. If you can't find a number then the item is non-recyclable and should be put into your rubbish bin.
