Compared to other developed countries, NZ has a vague and scattered approach to achieving zero-waste status. This website aims to help us recognise and address the problems before it is too late.
It's important to understand what items can and cannot be recycled. Here we also show you good and bad examples of product packaging. You can upload images of different waste items here also.
We can all become recycling advocates. By making the right choices and adapting our lifestyles, we can all help make NZ more sustainable, and ultimately waste-free.
We all need to take responsibility to reduce the waste we personally send to landfills. If we adopt a zero-waste:100% recycling attitude we can make a huge difference in our lifetime for the next generation.
We are all responsible for waste, it starts with us and ends with us.
When we buy products we also buy any waste associated with the products.
Recycling helps reduce our waste footprints.
