EDUCATION

We provide one off presentations and workshops as well as multi lesson packages. We are working closely with Enviroschools Canterbury to provide support for teachers in their established course work.

RECYCLING MACHINERY

 

We have our first piece of machinery ready to go! A hand cranked plastic chipper - this can be used to shred anything from plastic bottle tops to bread tags, that can then be used for creating products. There is a  workshop associated with this machine that will cover different types of plastic, their different properties and what role micro-plastics play in the environment. 

Coming soon is a plastic recycling unit that can visit schools and groups demonstrating the process involved in turning your waste into something more valuable.

 

* I am working closely with Enviroschools and teachers to develop lessons that fit in to the Curriculum Criteria. These presentations will be added as they are developed. Please get in touch if you have a specific topic you would like covered.  

 

BUSINESSES

PLASTIC PICKUPS

Would you be interested in giving your plastic waste to us to recycle? This is currently small scale but we intend to expand this service over time. The plastic will either be recycled or any that we cant recycle will be donated to Creative Junk for use with Early Childhood Education facilities. We will be implementing a seal to show your customers that you are reducing your waste where possible and supporting a local recycling action with the plastic that you do produce.
