Plastic Recycling Changes

Changes to your recycling collection

Good news everybody, Xtreme Waste is now collecting more types of plastics for recycling in Raglan.

What will be collected?

Until recently only plastics with the numbers 1, 2, and 5 have been collected for recycling, but the service now includes containers with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. The different types of plastics are identifiable by a number contained in a triangle of arrows located on the container.

What won’t be collected?

Polystyrene packaging, plastic bags, meat trays, lids, polystyrene takeaway containers and empty motor oil containers will still not be collected.

Don’t forget to wash…

Please ensure you wash and squash plastic containers and remove lids.
