No more TV recycling
We are no longer accepting CRT TVs or CRT monitors at our RCN e-Cycle depots in Wanaka or Queenstown. Recycling them has just got too expensive to make a user-pays collection viable (we’d have to charge $40 per TV to keep going, which we think is too high for an end-of-life charge). You can still recycle all other e-waste with us: computer towers, laptops, cables, LCD monitors, cellphones, cables, printers. Go to our web page or press release
Opening hours for Easter and beyond
Our shop and recycling centre will be closed Good Friday (17th April) and from 9am-noon on Anzac Day (25th April). We are open every other day, 9am-5pm for treasure-hunting, browsing and recycling.
You can find us on the corner of Riverbank Rd and Ballantyne Rd. Drop in for the ultimate op-shopping experience, the fire is on and it’s warm and cosy.
Hot builders recycle
Hope our new construction recycling ad makes you giggle – thanks to Bex and to Clint from CBG Quality Construction for modelling for us. Clint is one of our original recyclers from the building industry – he’s been recycling onsite for more than seven years. If you’re building a house, ask your builder to set up onsite recycling…It’s easy, and we can help.

This is version 5 of her foot-covers made from old mountain bike tyres from our yard. …read more
