Spreading the recycling load and word
The Citys very successful recycling programme is into its third Christmas, traditionally a very busy part of the year for recycling.
"Whether its the recycling of the odd unpopular Christmas present, or more commonly the result of indulging in the odd New Years cheer or libation - we get plenty of business!"
Recovered Materials Foundation CEO Graeme King.
This year the recycling campaign is encouraging the public to have a great time as usual over the holiday season, but to try to spread the results of their celebrations, "one recycling crate at a time" in terms of empties, as the Onyx collection trucks can only cope with so much at once.
Kerbside Recycling continues to grow in popularity with tonnages reflecting a steady increase in patronage estimated now at three out of every four households in Christchurch.
This summer will also see the introduction of a recycling service, through large multi-coloured recycling bins, at City Council SummerTimes events such as the Tip Top Ice Cream Teddy Bears Picnic, Retro!, ASB Bank Starry Nights and Rick Armstrong Motors Classical Sparks. Contd.
