Repurposing Team at Manukau

Our amazing repurposing team at Manukau have been working their way through thousands of DVD safers that need to be cleaned up before being recycled. 

How we prevented thousands of DVD Safes ending up in our Landfills

Removing metal strips and stickers mean this hard-to-recycle item can then be suitably recycled rather than sent to landfill.   This is an example of our corporate partner doing the right thing and not just adding to our landfills, already full of corporate and construction waste.  

This also creates living wage employment for a number of amazing people – some of whom started as volunteers and are now gainfully employed. 

As a result, our corporate partner is also redesigning their procurement practices to ensure this type of item is no longer even brought into our system. 

What a great environmental and social outcome!
