A new Agrecovery Container collection site has been opened at Farmlands on Taupo Street in Putaruru.

Local farmers, growers, contractors and golf courses can make the most of this recycling programme at the site which will accept plastic containers on Monday to Fridays, from 8am to 4pm.

Empty triple rinsed containers, 1 – 60 litres in size, from 57 brand owners of agrichemical, biological, animal health and dairy hygiene products can be recycled for free.

Farmlands have been very supportive of the rural recycling programme since it started in 2007, stocking wrap recycling bags in store and helping promote the programmes, as well as now hosting nine Agrecovery collection sites in the North Island.

Site address: Farmlands, 35 Taupo Street, Putaruru
Open hours: Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm

Containers must be empty, triple rinsed and free from residue inside and out. All containers will be inspected before being accepted. Only containers belonging to the 57 participating brand owners are free to recycle.
