LoveNZ recycling bins installed

Thursday, 17 January, 2008

The first ‘LoveNZ’ recycling bins have been installed in Kaikoura and unveiled by Environment Minister Trevor Mallard.

Kaikoura is one of the first four regions in New Zealand to receive government support to set up recycling bins in public places as part of a trial of the government’s Recycling in Public Places initiative. The bins aim to encourage recycling in public places.

The initiative aims to establish 600 recycling bins in public places throughout New Zealand by 2010. The government has allocated $4.6 million to install and service these bins.

Other councils trialling the Recycling in Public Places initiative are the Far North District Council, Wellington City Council and Christchurch City Council. The new recycling bins are in addition to existing recycling facilities in Kaikoura’s town centre.
