Let’s Recycle Right, Auckland

The Team from Auckland Council

There are three simple things we can do to help improve the quality of recycling that’s being collected.
1. Completely empty out containers, especially ones with liquid or drink.
2. Rinse out all containers. The cleaner the better is the rule of thumb.
3. Sort your waste carefully to make sure only the right recyclable containers from the kitchen, bathroom and laundry go in the recycling bin

Are you are recycling legend? Play the game now to improve your kerbside recycling. See if you know what can and what can’t go into your kerbside recycling bin.
