Community Drop-Off Station

Our recycling drop station is in place at the Riverlution Eco Hub located at 46a Vogel Street.

Community Collection Hubs are recycling stations that everyone can access to drop off items, at the Riverlution Eco Hub Collection Station, we have seven different streams:

  • Wine bottle caps and can tabs (remove inside plastic seal if you can, save the Christchurch Kidney Society a job)


  • Chip Packet in collaboration with the Chip Packet Project New Zealand (Make sure to rinse and dry them, as food residue attracts mice)


  • Razors, blades (any brand)


  • Toothpaste tubes and caps, floss containers, toothbrushes, mouthwash bottles                (Colgate brand only)


  • Plastic bottle tops cleaned thoroughly with labels, and inside seals removed. The type of plastic we want are HDPE (small lids chasing arrows 2) and PP (large lids chasing arrows 5)
  • Face mask ( If you have the time, please remove the elastic ear strap part and the metal nose strip. These cannot go through our shredder and it will save our team a lot of time to be able to process them faster. You can wash your facemask a few times before disposing of it inside the hub)


  • We no longer collect writing instruments

If you would like to know more about what happens to those streams or would like to be involved please get in touch with Morgane at
