Let’s get all New Zealanders to use public place recycling and litter bins!
Recycling when you are away from home has got a lot easier with more and more recycling bins around New Zealand. You’ll spot our PPRS (Public Place Recycling Scheme) recycling bins, which promote the Love NZ brand in all the public places you like to hang out – the local parks, sports stadiums, and tourist areas - for your convenience when recycling glass, recycling plastic, or recycling paper when you’re out and about. Our big vision is for an even cleaner, greener New Zealand - to reduce the amount of litter around the place by tripling the number of PPRS recycling bins by 2020. And we have strategic partnershipsto help make it happen.
You can now recycle your soft plastic packaging at Countdown, New World, PAK’N’Save, The Warehouse, Huckleberry Foods, Moore Wilson and Farro Fresh stores in an industry initiative soft plastic recycling which is rolling out nationally. Last year Kiwis dropped off over 100 tonnes of soft plastic bags for recycling at participating stores. That’s about 25 million bags.
Public Place means an indoor or outdoor place that at any time is open to or is being used by the public, whether free of payment or for a charge and includes indoor places intended for over 500 people and outdoor places intended for over 800 people.
Like you, we are passionate about this country, and keeping it the beautiful place we know and love. Together, our mission may not be accomplished overnight; but with every piece of plastic, glass, paper and aluminum you help us recycle, we’ll be one piece closer.
And if it’s not recyclable, do the right thing and use one of the thousands of litter bins around the country.
Why we Love NZ
Since 2011 our public place recycling efforts are stamped with the Love NZ brand. You can see Love NZ on a recycling bin at your local shopping centre or sports stadia as well as on your favourite drinks bottle or pizza box.
