One’s trash is another’s treasure

People with unwanted items that are still useful, others looking for their next upcycling project and still more on the hunt for a bargain are all welcome at Recycling Day.

The annual fixture is on at Anderson Park from 8.30 to 12pm on Saturday 4 November, run by Keep Napier Beautiful.

Every item sold to a secondhand shopper for a small donation boosts the organisation’s coffers for community grants, says Maxine Boag, Keep Napier Beautiful chair and Napier City councillor.

“Recycling Day is our main event to raise money for the grants we give out to activities and projects that protect or beautify Napier. Every person who drops off items for sale, or who buys something, is helping make Napier even more beautiful,” Councillor Boag says.

Councillor Boag has high hopes recycling will be front of mind for many people, with the event following on from the national Recycling Week, from 16 to 22 October.

“We want to make sure our community has every opportunity to reduce the impact waste has on the environment – remember if someone else can’t use the item because it’s broken or damaged then don’t bring it along.”

Projects funded by the grants in the last three years have included community gardens, tree planting at schools, clean-up days, and the Napier Repair Cafe.

Recycling Day, run in partnership with Napier City Council, is also supported by City of Napier cadets, Napier Host Lions, local schools, scout groups and Napier Youth Council.
