CBEC Recycling was established in 1989 to develop kerbside recycling and the Kaitaia recycling centre along with
a network of drop off centres around the Far North. The district wide scheme has been recognised as a model of
community led waste reduction and resource recovery. The success of recycling in the Far North would not
have been possible without the support and commitment of the far North District Council and the community.
We support the Far North's zero waste target.
