Recycling has always been a hot topic in Canterbury, espcially more recently. Most Cantabrians recycle correctly but with changes to the Christchurch sorting facility, only plastics labeled with the 1, 2 and 5 can be recycled.

 

What does this mean for you?

 

This means that next time you go to your recycling bin you should check the little number on your rinsed containers to make sure that they can be recycled correctly. Check out this video below explaining what can and can't be recycled!

 

If you have any more questions about what can and can't be recycled, check out the Christchurch City Council's app "Christchurch Bins" to check if you have "bin good" with your recycling.
