No more TV recycling

Matt (800x600)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

20140417_104638 (2)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.

We’re sponsoring her with free gear from Wastebusters because we love her passion for re-use and recycling.

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