This amazing recycle center is located right next to a rubbish transfer station; "perfect" so instead of most re-usable items being transported to a hole in the earth, first stop and think can it be re-used, re-cycled, up-cycled or re-loved. Just give it away to some one you know or to a recycle center like this or a second hand shop, church shop, Red Cross, homeless shelter or anyone but the "hole in earth". Dump transfer station looks nicer, sounds nicer and maybe sleep comes easier not seeing the usable items going into the ground; Mother earth, our whenua. Food could be growing there instead for the homeless and you could be helping instead.
Enough of my ranting here are some photos of one such recycle center "doing it right"; less in earth more to re-use.
"Insulation off cuts"; I have insulated two homes with off cuts from here and I have made an entire bathroom extension with recycled timber. I will put that video up soon. Lawn mowers, carpet, chairs, tables and so so much did not go to the dump and people pay less, saving so much .
All at extremely low prices so when you drop off those hoarded items, you no longer need, you know the "STUFF" in your shed that has been there for "LIKE 5-10 YEARS" un-used. You can come through and get something you do need and in doing so, you will be supporting the staff, yes this place gives jobs! You save by not paying to have your stuff go into a land fill "insane paying to have stuff go in the earth" so look for the recycle center in your town.
Drawers, bags, hardware, plumbing, golf clubs, pillows, beds, mats, white board and tools.
Bikes, trikes and books. I have some mountain bikes from here and a few books too!
Framing, chipboard ply flooring, vanities, tents and recreational items, iron roofing, doors, laundry tubs, plumbing, drainage, taps and all sorts. Notice how the framing timber does not have nails still in them.
