Save money & the planet

Automated Recycling

Where the Yellow Bin recycling from the Canterbury region is sorted, baled and sold as a reclaimed material.


EcoCentral is pleased to advise that all operations continue as normal at Alert Level 2.

At EcoCentral, we run the three EcoDrops and operate the Material Recovery Facility (EcoSort) on behalf of Christchurch City Council. The EcoShop is also part of our unique business.  We receive and process a high proportion of Canterbury recycling and waste, seeking to divert into usable resources, with a target of minimising the residual waste to landfill.
