Our goal for 2020 onward is to keep oil-based plastics out of landfills, maximise home composting and to make sure we are able to compost everything we collect.
To do that, we’re making some changes and we need your help.
Little & Brave has composted over two hundred metric tonnes of organic material since Eco Circle opened for operations at the end of 2018. This compost has been used for land remediation in Clevedon to add much needed nutrients to the ground and to nurture young saplings.
We want to make sure we can Compost everything we Collect. To do that, we need your help. We need everyone who can to Home Compost as much as possible, and if able, to only send Poo Nappies back to the Little & Brave ‘Eco Circle’ site.
The Nappy Truck:
The Nappy Truck is out in the Community Tuesday through Thursday each week. There is a minimal charge of $4 p/bag of compostable goodness (That’s one full 80L bag). You can purchase Pre-Paid Nappy Truck loyalty card online, then you are good to go for TEN full 80L bags of compostable goodness.
You will find the Truck:
Tuesday – Countdown Richmond Road carpark (9:30-10:30)
Wednesday – Huckleberry New Lynn carpark (9:30-10:30)
Thursday – Countdown St Johns carpark (9:30-10:30)
Eco Circle (our very own Commercial Composting facility):
- Our Penrose Eco Circle site will be open for free drop-offs Monday – Friday 7am-4pm (excl. Public Holidays)
- Any bags left at the site outside of these times will be sent to landfill
- If it is deemed necessary when volumes collected are in excess of our capacity, we reserve the right to send overflow nappies to landfill. We currently have strict limits on raw, unprocessed nappies and have strict emissions limits in terms of waste-to-air and waste-to-water, which impact volumes that can be stored on-site unprocessed – remember, this is something we desperately want to avoid – our goal is to compost everything we collect.
- One-Off Collections will remain at $30.00 per collection
- Drop & Collect will take place every second week – there will be no more weekly Drop & Collect service
Thank you for saving the world, one nappy at a time!
