​​​​​​​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. 

 

​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 residual rubbish into official Ōpōtiki ​District Council refuse bin.
