This week is recycling week and what better way to acknowledge it than with TWO big recycling initiatives! 

First we announced our new Liquid Paper Board (more commonly known as Tetra Pak®) recycling collection bins in our three service centres; our refuse transfer stations and the Hauraki Repair and Reuse Centre in Paeroa, and now we’re excited to unveil new recycling bins for our three town centres.

There's a new bin in town

Our communities have been asking for recycling bins in our town centres so unveiling the first one during Recycling Week is really pleasing.

The first bins to be installed, brightly coloured in the nationwide standard colours for landfill (red), mixed recycling (yellow) and glass (blue) sit beside the William Street public toilets, at the entrance to popular Railway Reserve in Paeroa.

Our ground crew will have the Waihi bins (replacing the Big Belly bin outside the Waihi Memorial Hall) and the Ngatea bins (on the footpath outside the N and T café) installed by mid-November.

Additional Big Belly solar powered compacting bins too

We’re re-installing a Big Belly bin outside the Bakehouse in Paeroa and taking the current Big Belly bin that’s beside the N and T café in Ngatea and installing it at the northern end of the street outside Freshway. Another Big Belly bin is being installed in the Hugh Hayward Domain in Ngatea too.

Countdown to new kerbside collection starts

We're on a countdown to put as many recycling options in place before the new kerbside collection starts with Waste Management on the 1 September 2023.

 The support from the community for our No Time to Waste Tiakina a Papa Mimiti te Para campaign has been great – there’s a real appetite to support a circular no waste economy. Now we've got more ways to keep recycling out of landfill.
