Recycling at Main Library

The Main Library at B110 now has a three bin system. Everywhere you see a rubbish bin in the library there should also be two other bins - one for paper and the other for plastic, glass and cans. 

Please help us help the planet by selecting the correct bin for your rubbish. 

We are offering a $20 PAKnSAVE gift voucher to the first 3 people who post a photo of themselves on the Unitec Library Facebook page using the Main Library (B110) glass/plastic/cans recycling bins (with blue sticker on them) correctly - you will need to have 'liked' the Library Facebook page as well. To do this go to: http://www.facebook.com/pages/UnitecLibrary/224005597629398
