Recyclable plastics on left hand sideNon recyclable items on the right hand side
First, our recyclable items are picked up by the waste collectors and then taken to a Facility to be sorted.
Our trash is sent to a Facility where it is sorted, by hand, removing wrong items such as plastic bags, clothing batteries and food scraps.
After, the plastic is separated into recyclable and non recyclable items, a task completed by a scanning machine. The plastic is then sold to make new products in New Zealand and overseas.
As for the non recyclable items such as clothes batteries and other types of plastic, they end up in the habitat of poor animals aka the landfill.
