Here are some things that would really help the kerbside collection and sorting team each week

Before you put your recycling out for collection, 

  • Wash  and squash containers
  • Remove Lids - discard plastic ones in the bin 
  • NO broken Glass - Wrap securely and put in the rubbish bin
  • Separate paper from cardboard and contain securely and place next to the recycling crate. 
  • Bring party loads of recycling straight to the Recycling Centre

Thanks from the Xtreme Waste Team

On Saturday 31st March from 10am the Celebration Day of Xtreme Waste's new Hamilton RCN e-Cycle Centre at 8 A Jolly Street in Frankton will begin. The Mayor herself will be in attendance from 11am and we will have other speakers talking about Zero Waste.

Please come along, enjoy visiting the new site as the Xtreme Waste Kaupapa reaches further afield into our closest city

Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing and most toxic waste streams. Electronic items contain toxic heavy metals and chemicals that can harm land, water and people. The Ministry for the Environment estimates 80,000 tonnes of e-waste goes to New Zealand landfills each year. RCN Group estimates its collaboration with Xtreme Waste, on behalf of Council, will divert between 120 and 250 tonnes of electronic waste from landfill every year.
