The Public Place Recycling Scheme works with councils, recyclers and businesses to expand the number of public place recycling and rubbish bins around New Zealand. Sometimes the required solutions need new infrastructure, equipment or funding for research.

Since 2013, we have directly funded projects worth over $1.3 million. These projects have helped increase the availability of recycling bins and found recycling solutions such as for soft plastics. This year we are looking for additional pilot regions for our Let’s Put Litter in its Place campaign.

We can help you....
