Blue Bins for Glass

Online Content Publisher from Whangarei District Council

Well done and thank you to the people of Whangarei for getting on board with the new blue bin glass recycling.

There have been hardly any mistakes so far in this week’s collection and crews are finding the sorting much easier and safer. With the different materials pre-sorted they are much more valuable to recycling plants and can more easily be turned back in to new products. We aim to make our recycling system as efficient as possible, and having Blue Bins for glass is an important part of that effort.

Around 19,000 blue bins have now been delivered to central Whangarei suburbs with delivery to Bream Bay today and tomorrow, then Mangakaramea through to Kauri for the rest of the week.

Northland Waste will be leaving a sticker on bins where there is glass in the red bin or something other than glass in the blue bin. Residents will need to sort their recycling properly then place it out for collection again next week.
