About 70% of the rubbish in our rubbish bags could be reused or recycled. Around 30% of the rubbish going into the Transfer Station could also be recycled.
Napier and Hastings landfill is called Omarunui landfill. Omarunui landfill receives approximately 70,000 tonnes of waste every year. If
this waste was not compacted and left above ground it would almost fill two Westpactrust Sports Stadiums.
To find out more contact the Waste Minimisation Officer, or search the internet as there are numerous websites dedicated to waste minimisation.

eDay - Computer Recycling
Official eday logo.
Napier hosted eDays in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The Ministry for the Environment (MFE) is partially funding recycling of e-waste from October 2012.
Computer hard drives (the metal component) can be taken to scrap metal dealers for recycling. All other E-Waste components are able to be recycled at the Hawke's Bay Environment Centre (note that charges apply). Residents can take e-waste to your local Transfer Station but normal charges will apply.
More than six litres of household paint is sold each year for each and every person in New Zealand. Some of this paint is unused
and remains in paint containers, often ending up in the local landfill. There are lots of ways you can reduce the impact that
unwanted paint can have on the environment.
Resene offer the "Paintwise" Programme which allows customers to return unused and unwanted paints to any of their stores
