Large unwanted plastic items are being given a new life in a recycling trial underway in Auckland, the Council reports. These include the likes of plastic laundry baskets, buckets, chairs, dishwashing racks, clamshell sandpits, rubbish bins and storage boxes. Because these items cannot be put in the household kerbside recycling collection it is important that we find another way to recycle them – instead of ending up in landfill. The plastics can be dropped off at Community Recycling Centres (CRC’s) in Devonport, Helensville and Waiuku until the end of October.
