And you will also find bins for the following:
|MILK BOTTLE LIDS (#2 plastic) – for a local recycler|
|CAN TABS – for Kidney Kids|
|FOOD GRADE SILICONE|
|WINE BOTTLE CAPS|
If you are unsure about what you can and cannot bring to the recycling wall, just ask one of our friendly staff or email firstname.lastname@example.org, we are more than happy to help!
We have teamed up with E-cycle, who provide an environmentally friendly recycling solution, which will keep these batteries out of landfills.
We accept up to 5kg of household batteries for no charge at the front desk of The Reuse shop. Please ensure batteries have no rust or corrosion, as these pose a serious fire risk and cannot be sent for recycling.
Lithium batteries and any batteries over 9v need their contact points taped for safety.
For Commercial Battery Recycling, pricing is $9/kg ex.GST
The Junction has teamed up with TetraPak, Sanitarium and SaveBoard to close the loop on ‘liquid paper board’ packaging.
The Junction will be supplying the baled product to SaveBoard who recycle the packaging into a quality building product.
Packaging should be rinsed, cut open and flattened. All associated plastics such as lids and straws should stay on/in the packaging as part of the recycling process.
