Make the most of waste by the Auckland Council

The bigger picture

Developing community recycling centres

During the next 10 years, we are developing a network of community recycling centres so people can drop off unwanted goods at any time of the year.

 Resources recovered from inorganic collections will provide materials to those centres, as well as charities. Collecting items from on-property will also ensure materials are intact and reusable.

We expect that the centres will become community destinations for reusing, recycling and refurbishing items, and offer business and job opportunities for local people.
