“I’m putting a call out to all Napier residents - if you haven’t had a spring clean yet, or your place is really overdue for a de-cluttering mission, it’s time to get cracking,” says Maxine Boag, Keep Napier Beautiful chairperson and Napier City Councillor.

“Help us reduce waste and help each other. Recycling Day makes it possible to be a good citizen and gain a bargain at the same time.”

Only the following items will be accepted: furniture, whiteware, toys, tools, clothing, books, reusable timber, paper, cardboard, plant pots, punnets, bottles, jars, bric a brac, framed windows, bikes, metals, and household appliances, in working order.

The money collected from donated items, using a new checkout system, goes towards grants of up to $500 for beautification projects by community groups and organisations. Recycling unwanted items also diverts unnecessary waste from the Omarunui landfill.

Recycling Day, on the Freyberg Avenue side of Anderson Park, is organised by the Keep Napier Beautiful committee, all volunteers, who are assisted by City of Napier cadets, Napier City Council staff, and the Taradale Lions Club. Besides selling sausages the Lions will assist other Keep Napier Beautiful volunteers with collecting money for the donated items.

Only items dropped off on the day will be accepted. Site marshals are allowed to ask for a more generous donation before allowing someone to take an item of a clearly higher value, Site marshals also have the right to refuse to accept material that is not recyclable or reusable.
