South Island district's residents upset to learn recycling going straight to landfill

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Environmentally conscious Kaikōura residents say they have been misled by their council, which has been landfilling paper and plastics intended for recycling.

"Every week, our kerbside team collects tonnes of 'recycling' that is actually rubbish (things that cannot currently be recycled and have to go to our landfill)," Innovative Waste Kaikōura said on Facebook.

Council senior operations manager Dave Clibbery said people were not told of the changes to recycling markets because it had been hoped it was a short-term problem.

However, there had not been a reliable market for coloured plastics since 2016 and the materials that had been stockpiled were now deteriorating and being dumped in the landfill.

He maintained the council was correct in telling people they could still deposit all plastics in their recycling, even though they were likely to be stockpiled and/or landfilled.
