• DIY products such as solvents, glues and wood preservatives

• Mobile phones

Other unwanted paint and paint containers can be taken to your local Resene Colourshop, Placemakers or Enviropaints in East Tamaki for recycling.

The Hazmobile only accepts waste in amounts that would reasonably be expected to come from a household. No commercial quantities are accepted.

The next Hazmobile collection in Manukau is in Pakuranga on Saturday 21 February 2009 in the public carpark in Lloyd Elsmore Park.
