Understanding hazards and risks to build capability
Minimising waste helps protect and sustain our environment for future generations. Recycling and reusing materials also has economic and environmental benefits for our community.
There are two Transfer Stations on the Chatham Islands – at Kaingaroa and Te One.
The Te One Transfer Station, at present, has ongoing improvements.
The sanitary landfill at Owenga was construction in 2014 with the help of a Government grant.
There is a recycling collection point at 'Mitre 12' at Te One Transfer Station to help us reduce the amount of waste that goes into our landfill.
You can drop off items including:
Aluminium cans are being collected for the ABC Trust and Number 1 plastic is being sent to New Zealand for recycling.
Chatham Islands residents can dispose of items such as televisions, computers, scanners, printers, fax machines, toner, stereos, washing machines, DVD and VCR players, toasters, kettles, blenders and microwaves.
Items should be dropped off at 'Mitre 12' at Te One Transfer Station.
Number 1 plastic includes soft drink bottles, sauce bottles and juice bottles. It has a number one in a recycling triangle, usually on the bottom of the product.
