Recycling Changes: From 1 February, the Government has standardised what materials can be collected from households for recycling and organics across New Zealand. The only items now able to be recycled are plastic bottles, clear meat trays and containers number 1, 2 and 5, food and drink tins and cans, paper and cardboard, and glass bottles and jars. Christchurch residents are able to put empty pizza boxes into the yellow recycling bin. Tea bags, shredded paper, serviettes, paper towels and aerosol cans all need to go into the RED rubbish bin. All lids, soft plastics and drink cartons must continue to go in the red bin.
