Zero Waste Hub Northcote

Working alongside Eke Panuku, Kaipātiki Local Board and Auckland Council, the Zero Waste Hub Northcote has been set up to serve the community through education, support and collaboration.

This innovative programme has grown from a desire by mana whenua to see their aspirations realised in relation to Para Kore / Zero Waste for Te Ara Awataha - Northcote Greenway programme. Kaitiaki representatives oversaw development of a cultural indicator framework Take Mauri Take Hono. This framework has created the driver to support all stakeholders to come together seeking to restore the mauri of the Awataha waterway, as well as the land and the people in Northcote. The framework also identifies Para Kore / Zero Waste as a key indicator for success, creating a focus on achieving the goal of Zero Waste 2040 in the Northcote town centre and surrounding residential and business area.

47 Pearn Place, Northcote

Open Thursdays and Saturdays, 10am - 2pm

Hub Activities

We are looking for volunteers to have the hub regularly open. If you are interested, please email Robyn at zerowaste@kaipatiki.org.nz.

  • Recycle 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. Bring your old curtains to 47 Pearn Place, Northcote (please note we cannot take blinds – roman blinds or venetian blinds). Your curtains will be cleaned, adjusted where needed and provided to families who need them to help keep their home warm.
  • Recycle EcoStore bottles: Bring in you empty EcoStore bottles to 47 Pearn Place, Northcote and drop them off. Please note that this is only for EcoStore bottles, no other brands. Thank you!
