Councils align on recycling rules

From Morning Report, 8:22 am on 1 February 2024

The whole country, bar four councils, will now follow one set of rules about what can and can't be recycled via kerbside collection.

Previously, each council determined what was accepted.

While some councils will be expending what they accept with these rules, others are taking a backwards step.

Auckland Council general manager of waste solutions spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
