Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB) Browns Bay – Recycling for good

Maurice Hanvey from Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB) Browns Bay, says they frequently receive questions from people wanting to know how to recycle or repurpose items. He advises that there is loads of information on – just type recycle into the search box. He also has a couple of specific recommendations:

• The Salvation Army family store at 4/215 Rosedale Road is one of very few opshops that will accept electrical appliances for potential re-sale.

• NZ Red Cross is always grateful for blankets, as are local animal charities – so pick your favourite and give them a call.

You may also wish to consider The Freecycle Network™, a non-profit whose members give (and get) stuff for free. It’s a global organisation, with several groups around Auckland, including the North Shore. Visit to find out more.
