Zero Waste / Para Kore

A zero waste world is one where resources are valued and nothing is wasted. Northcote residents and businesses have the potential to lead the way in protecting Papatūānuku and inspiring others to reach the goal of a zero waste Auckland by 2040.

Hub Activities

We are looking for volunteers to have the hub regularly open. If you are interested, please email Robyn at [email protected] or follow THIS LINK to sign up or ask questions about volunteering.

We recycle many odd bits. Welcome to drop them off when we're open.

  • Old curtains: As a curtain collection point for Habitat For Humanity, Northern Region, we want to instill a second life to your pre-loved curtains. Your curtains will be cleaned, adjusted and provided to families who need them to help keep their home warm. Please note we cannot take blinds – roman blinds or venetian blinds.
  • Small batteries, such as AAs, AAA or similar.
  • Oral care packaging, including toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes.
  • Polystyrene: Please make sure it's clean.
  • Coffee capsules.
  • Ink cartridges.
