Collection Point Recycling
Did you know Envirohub Marlborough is a collection point for
numerous recycling programs?
Although we would prefer everyone to choose reusable items first and foremost, we also love initiatives like these that recycle and then reuse!
Feel free to drop any of the items below into the Picton Environment Centre at 14 Auckland Street, Picton on Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm and we will ensure they go back into circulation to be reused.
We also have a new Recycling Collection Point at the MySpace Youth Centre. You can drop off household batteries, bread tags, aluminium can tabs and aluminium wine bottle caps at 18 Kinross St. in Blenheim on Monday to Friday from 10am to 5:30pm
Thank you for actioning the 5 R's
Aluminium Can Tabs & Aluminium Wine Bottle Caps
Kan Tabs for Kids goes towards supporting the families of children on dialysis, and is the largest nationwide Lions Club project. The tabs and caps are collected in their thousands, and packaged before being sent to metal merchants for weighing and payment. A single cap works out to the equivalent of one second on dialysis.
Clean Used Razor Blades- Any Brand
You can drop your clean used blades into Envirohub Marlborough and we will package them correctly and send them back to Caliwoods for repurposing or recycling. Product Stewardship at it's finest!
The Collective Yogurt Pouches
Drop off "The Collective" brand yogurt pouches and Envirohub Marlborough will send them to TerraCycle to be made in to new recycled products. Continue to recycle "The Collective" yogurt pottles and bottles in your kerbside recycling. Only "Probot", "Suckies" and "Moogurt" pouches please!
Used Good Nature Gas Cannisters
These are made of recycled and recyclable steel. Picton Dawn Chorus collects these once used and takes them to a local facility to be melted down and used again.
Toothbrushes, Toothpaste Tubes, Floss and Mouthwash Containers
Drop off any brand of toothpaste tubes/toothbruhses and Envirohub Marlborough will send them to TerraCycle to be made in to new recycled products. Please remove all toothpaste and floss from the countainers and recycle the cardboard packaging in your recycling bin.
Beer Bottle Caps
Beer bottle caps can't be recycled in kerbside recycling in Marlborough so we collect them to keep them from going to the landfill. Once we get a good supply we drop them off at a local scrap metal company for recycling.
