Aucklanders back recycling over dumping rubbish

Aucklanders seem to be embracing re-cyling instead of dumping their rubbish, according to figures released by Auckland Council.

Aucklanders seem to be embracing re-cyling instead of dumping their rubbish, according to figures released by Auckland Council.

The city slickers are keeping more than 1500 tonnes of materials out of landfill each year by using the inorganic collections service.

More than 150 community groups have registered to benefit from these items which include electronics, whiteware and furniture.

Aucklanders are also dropping off 5200 tonnes of unwanted items at community recycling centres.

Auckland Councillor Richard Hills said using the on-property collection service had kept more than 7417 tonnes - the combined weight of 49 blue whales_ out of landfill and given those items a second life.

Before the booked inorganic service rolled out, people were leaving the materials on the kerbside to be picked up as rubbish, he said.

"Aucklanders were sending all of those items to landfill this way each year; nothing was recycled."

Do you recycle your rubbish?

Do you prefer to book the inorganic collection or drop your goods off at recycling centres?

Have you seen any evidence of rubbish dumping in streets around your neighbourhood?

If you’re interested in paying forward, here's an opportunity.

Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS), is seeking volunteer drivers and companions for its Manukau East Shopping Shuttle.

Every Thursday, the shuttle takes people, who often live alone or no longer drive, to Botany Town Centre or Pakuranga Plaza for shopping and a cuppa.

Drivers are mainly responsible for arranging the times and routes for pick-ups and delivering their passengers safely.

Companion’s help clients get into and out of the vehicle and assist with seatbelts.

And if required, a walker or scooter can be booked for passengers to use at the shopping centres.

This daily-life activity has far reaching benefits for our passengers including;
1). Stimulating cognitive processes e.g. enabling passengers to ask questions when determining where items can be obtained, evaluate and compare before and after purchase, and determine value as compared to cost
2). Providing physical benefits e.g. walking around the shopping mall.
3). Function as a leisure pursuit that promotes social engagement e.g. chatting with other passengers and forming friendships.

Perhaps the most appealing aspect of shopping as a life-enriching activity is that it can be enjoyed by most people - even those who may have health problems.

When required and with a little help from our volunteers, people with mobility or transportation challenges can experience the cognitive, health, and social benefits a day on the town can provide.

For further information please call 0800 632 677.
