Did you know that you can recycle your old electronic waste at your local Resource Recovery Park?
These items can not go in your yellow bin as they will be damaged in our sorting system, however you can drop them for recycling. We accept various items, some at no charge and others for a small fee.
So, don't throw your old electrical items in the rubbish, bring them in and have them recycled into something new.
With batteries unable to be placed in the bin collection, our Resource Recovery Parks at Fairlie, Tekapo and Twizel offer FREE collection points for old batteries.
Batteries accepted are:
- Household batteries - AAA, AA, 9V, C, D
- Button cell batteries - i.e. watch and hearing aid batteries
- Re-chargeable batteries from hand held tools - i.e. Skill saw or drill batteries
- Automotive batteries
