Burying and burning of waste materials, particularly hazardous waste materials, is not a sustainable practice. We have Broadlands Road Resource Recovery Park and five transfer stations located throughout the district to help residents dispose of waste sustainably.
Recycling is accepted at all of the waste facilities along with waste for landfill.
Unused/unwanted farm agrichemicals
Recycling agrichemical and animal remedy plastic containers
Farm agrichemical and animal remedy plastic container disposal is an ongoing problem for farmers and growers throughout New Zealand. Agrecovery gives farmers and growers the opportunity to now dispose of these plastic containers in a responsible and sustainable way for free.
The Agrecovery Rural Recycling Programme provides New Zealand’s primary sector with responsible and sustainable systems for the recovery and recycling of persistent “on-farm” waste products.
Triple or pressure rinse your containers immediately following use.
Pour the RINSE WATER back in to your spray tank. Repeat process three times.
Clean outside of container thoroughly to ensure all traces of chemicals are removed.
Do not remove label.
Remove lid and puncture holes in the container, allowing it to dry thoroughly.
For difficult to clean containers such as those containing suspension concentrates (Altrazine, Simazine etc.) or oil-based chemicals (ULVs, LVs), go to www.agrecovery.co.nz
