New recycling hub opens for business in student quarter

Dunedin's newest recycling hub is officially open for business.

The second of the city's three new recycling hubs was officially opened this morning, with a "ribbon-pulling" ceremony.

The Dunedin City Council has installed the hub on the corner of Forth and St David Streets, in collaboration with the Otago Polytechnic.

$80,000 per hub? or the lot, somebody has applied a DCC tac to the manufacture of them if that is per Hub.

Give it a few weeks and it will look like the area around clothes collection boxes- full of rubbish....Seen these in a couple of countries and they do not work unless the populace follows rules, and we expect students to behave? I do expect a few couches to adorn the perimeters.
