Zero Waste Zone open day
This June and July one of Auckland's best-kept secrets, the Zero Waste Zone, is throwing open the doors to Aucklanders who want to find out more about creative upcycling.
The Zero Waste Zone is an exciting, interactive centre that showcases ways to repurpose and rethink waste.
Visitors can wander the experience trail, which is built completely from waste materials that have been given a second life. Here you can see how nature makes no waste, get close up to worms and learn the basics of worm farming, composting and Bokashi.
There’s also the opportunity to get your hands dirty in the Make Space zone, equipped with real tools for turning rubbish into sculptures, instruments, games and more.
Where: Auckland Council Waitakere Refuse and Recycling Centre, 50 The Concourse, Henderson
Getting in: At the weighbridge, inform staff you are here to visit. Take the first left at Gate 2 and follow up the hill to the zone.
• Please note that you must drive, as walking through the site is prohibited.

When: 9am - 1pm, Saturday 18 June, 9 July, 16 July
