We would like to confirm that your paper cups and Tetra Pak can be recycled in most of the Auckland region (except the Waitakere and North Shore where recycling collections do not get processed at the Onehunga recycling plant). The containers are processed at the Materials Recovery Facility in Onehunga and shipped in bales to Korea, India and Australia where they are soaked in water to separate the paper from the plastic and/or aluminium layers. The content is turned into products like cardboard boxes, toilet paper, tissue and notebooks.
