This year our contractor Enviro NZ is refurbishing our rubbish and recycling trucks, making sure they’re ready to hit the streets.
They offered us a chance to add a fresh lick of paint on two brand new trucks as part of the wider fleet refurbishment, and we were keen to take the opportunity. By November the majority of the Enviro NZ trucks will have been repainted.
The trucks are brightly coloured, and share great tips to help you and your whānau prepare your rubbish and recycling.
Team Leader Recycling and Rubbish Collection Tony Webster says the new trucks will hopefully catch Wellingtonians’ eyes and help share a few important messages.
“There are a few simple things that people can do when it comes to sorting rubbish that really helps divert waste from landfill, like giving things to be recycled a quick rinse and making sure you don’t squash them before they go in the bin or bag.”
