Soft Plastic Recycling

On Friday we had Lesley Ottey come to talk to us about a new initiative  aimed at encouraging recycling and reducing our landfill.  

We can now recycle  soft plastic bags including bread bags, frozen food bags, toilet paper packaging, confectionery and biscuit wrap, chip bags, pasta and rice bags, courier envelopes, shopping bags - basically anything made of plastic which can be scrunched into a ball.

Soft Plastic Recycling Bins are now provided at these 4 supermarkets in Rangiora.
New World Rangiora 
Countdown Rangiora East 
Countdown Rangiora Central 
Pak 'N Save Rangiora 


Until there are facilities in New Zealand, these soft plastics will be sent to Australia where they will be made into park benches and fitness circuits for playgrounds.
