Quick tips for recycling right

You can recycle packaging from the kitchen, bathroom and laundry.


  • rinse and squash all containers
  • leave the lids on all bottles and containers
  • containers should be no larger than 4 litres
  • don’t put plastic bags in your Auckland Council recycling bin – they get caught in the sorting machines.

Remember, your Auckland Council recycling collection is for household quantities of recycling only. There are often other options for business waste or a large volume of material – visit the Recycler directory for more information about this.
