Soft plastic recycling bins are back

Paul Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours, soft plastic recycling bins are coming back.

The Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme, which was suspended in 2018, has returned to Auckland and Hamilton and, as of October, will be back in Wellington too.

It can get confusing trying to keep track of what to recycle, what not to recycle, and what's just rubbish.

Here's what you can and can't put in soft plastic recycling bins.

Sublime, Resort-Style on the water apartment.

The Team from Neighbourly Property

A fantastic apartment on offer with extremely motivated vendors in the very prestigious, Lighter Quay residences in the Viaduct district. Two-bedroom, two-bathroom leasehold unit, nestled in a secluded corner of the quay, sit on the absolute water's edge with balcony. The apartments are designed with effortless flow, enhanced by floor-to-ceiling glass windows which let light stream in.

In the midst of Auckland's best entertainment: a short stroll around the area will put you in reach of fine waterfront dining, lively Wynward Quarter, Silo Park or the serene Victoria Park. Not to mention the numerous facilities in the residence itself, including a swimming pool and gym, and comes with two secure car parks.

You would be hard pressed to find another lifestyle like this in the central district - slip away into this surreal, still-water oasis and feel on holiday year-round.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Devonport & Remuera

"Kia ora - John Orr from New World Devonport here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Chalk Hill’s Grenache Tempranillo 2018. As a fan of Rhone Valley Grenache blends, I really enjoyed this Australian variation because it has the full flavour of dark berry fruits with a nice subtle spiciness making it a real pleasure to drink.” And Vaki Plakic from New World Remuera’s pick is Stoneleigh’s Rapaura Chardonnay. “I’m usually a Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fan, but this year I discovered the Rapaura Chardonnay from Marlborough, which is rich in fruit flavour and well balanced. Plus, it’s this year’s Award’s Champion Chardonnay, so you can’t go wrong with this wine!”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
