Recycling for businesses

Find local collection providers, or drop off locations, for your recyclables and food waste.

Once you have taken all the steps to avoid and reduce waste and reuse items wherever possible, the next option is recycling.

There are a range of options in Wellington to recycle materials your business no longer needs or wants. These options will save resources going to landfill and allow them to stay in circulation.

If your business creates high volumes of food waste, consider keeping it out of the landfill by donating edible food and turning food scraps into quality compost.
