Polystyrene Collection

On Boxing Day we put out a wool sack by our Kakariki St sign and invited the neighbourhood to put their waste polystyrene in there for us to take to the Poly Palace down in Porirua. Unfortunately Kapiti does not offer any polystyrene recycling. We got quite a good response considering this initiative was not advertised beyond the small sign and sack on the street corner. We only really get street residents driving by and foot traffic to the park, so we believe the haul of 2 sacks full was rather big.

This little sign was all the promotion we needed to fill the sack twice

This initiative was rather successful and we think there would be great benefit in organising and promoting a Paekakariki wide collection – say on a 6 monthly basis. Watch this space…
