I am the environment and the environment is me.
‘TerraCycle® is a social enterprise Eliminating the Idea of Waste®. In 21 countries, we tackle the issue from many angles. We have found that nearly everything we touch can be recycled and collect typically non-recyclable items through national, first-of-their-kind recycling platforms.’
Last month in Mahuru September, at kindergarten we collected 1191 pieces of waste that would have otherwise ended up in landfill.
We have so many changemakers in our wider community. With their continued support, we can keep strengthening local recycling practice and develop end-of-life solutions for tricky waste streams.
In total throughout Aotearoa, 130,377 PIECES OF WASTE WAS COLLECTED in Mahuru September. 341 shipments were received, weighing in at a total of 1096.50kg. An incredible effort from the TerraCycle community to divert hard-to-recycle waste from landfill.
Our efforts have raised $26.12 for a charity of our choosing!
A reminder that we collect:
Oral care waste – all products, all brands;
Glad single use plastic and food storage containers;
Nescafe dolce gusto capsules – currently being collected from the Tairua Residential Care whānau.
