Late night shopping

unnamedWe thought Friday night shopping before Christmas would be fun. Bring your kids and make it a family night out. We’ll be staying open until 8.30pm on Friday 12th Dec and Friday 19th Dec.

We’re open 9am-5pm, 7 days for the rest of December and January (except Christmas Day when we’re closed for feasting and celebration).

Hard times in Alex

TVTB Alexandra Ross & SueCentral Otago Wastebusters in Alexandra is going through some hard financial times – kia kaha. Read about it in the ODT.

We’re meeting next week about how Wanaka Wastebusters has managed to stay in a strong financial position. Community enterprise adds so much; we hope Alex will get behind them the way Wanaka has for us.

Appliance recycling

Did you know we dismantle most large appliances on-site for recycling and reuse? It’s a good feeling to leave your old oven or washing machine with us and know that the materials will be made into something new. We charge $5-$15 per appliance, depending on the size. Click here for the full price list.

All the metal is recycled, except for the washing machines cylinders which we sell as braziers.  The only appliances which we can’t recycle are fridges and freezers because of the high cost of degassing them responsibly.20141215_164555 (640x480)
