Recycling trial

Selected suburbs in the Manurewa and Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board areas will be used to trial efforts to reduce the amount of contamination in recycling bins.

More than 15 per cent of Auckland’s recycling is contaminated with non-recyclable items, increasing costs to council and seeing items that could be recycled ending up in landfill.

The trial runs until September and focusses on educating people on reducing non-recyclables, with the council’s community WasteWise team joining community partners such as Talking Trash and Pacific Vision Aotearoa.
