Recycle, PROUD of Christchurch.

It’s the rubbish collection day for our area today. I couldn’t help but feel proud of what we do with our wastes in Christchurch. Compare Christchurch population with the rest of the world, we are tiny.

Earlier this year I visited North Shore, Auckland. I helped my friend taking rubbish out to the curbside. I realized Auckland do not have recycle system like Christchurch. It reminded me there were no recycling in New York city and New Jersey when I visited there.

Do you know we export container loads (tons and tons of) recycled plastic and other reusable materials to counties like Vietnam and more? They buy our recycled raw material to produce products because many other counties do not have recycle system.

Besides the red and black jersey, we should be proud of our yellow and green wheelie bins. It’s good for the environment, it is also good for the economy. Here’s our recycled material include a bin nearly full of tea possibly becoming some kind of fertilizer.
