Recycling

Lynda from Ohauiti

Hi. I have a whole pile of prescription glasses for recycling. I heard in the past that some opticians take old glasses for recycling in the Pacific Islands or elsewhere. Can anyone recommend an optician in Tauranga? Also I have 2 old mobile phones for recycling. Can anyone tell me where in Tauranga that I could drop these off.

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
