Councillor Geoff Evans checks out the big blue recycling bin
The new recycling bin in the Waihopai Valley is a great start to more recycling and better rural waste management, says Councillor Geoff Evans.
“This is part of Council’s Rural Community Recycling system, which collects glass, cardboard, paper, plastics and cans.”
“The collected materials are taken to the Resource Centre in Blenheim for processing and sale into commodity markets.”
Council collected 254,856 kgs of recycling from Marlborough’s rural communities between July 2016 and February 2017.
