​​​​​​​7 Steps to Perfect Household Waste Collection

1 - CANS CAN

You can recycle nearly all cans.  Aluminium, steel, paint and aerosol.  Just remember to EMPTY their contents and rinse clean. 

 

2 - PLASTIC

Plastic bottles and plastic bags can be recycled.  Look for the symbol on the bottom. 

 

3 - PAPER TRAIL 

Recycle newspapers, magazines, junk mail and cardboard.  Remember to flatten all boxes and tie paper. 


​4 - A TOUCH OF GLASS 

You can recycle bottles and jars, but be sure to remove the tops and give them a good rinse. 

 

  

5 - PACKING YOUR BIN FOR THE WIND

Please make sure your recyclables don't get blown around your street. 

Put them all into plastic grocery bags, tie them shut and put them in your bin. 

 

​6 - ONE MORE LOOK

Can it be:

  • Recycled?
  • Reused?
  • Composted?
  • Used around the house?

The more you can keep out of the landfill, the better off we'll all be. 


7 - BAG IT

When you've sorted everything else out, put your residential rubbish into official Opotiki District Council black plastic bags.
