The Auckland Flower Show

Go green with your blue bin

Wondering what to do with your small blue recycling bin now it's been replaced by the big green wheelie one? How about growing your own unique garden in it, and be in to win a chance to exhibit at the Auckland Flower Show?

The Auckland Flower Show is encouraging residents who no longer have a use for their small blue recycling bins to participate in its "Recycle your Recycling Bin" competition. The best bin gardens will be judged and exhibited at the Flower Show, creating one of many unique displays at the Alexandra Park event, 20-23 November. For all entries accepted for display, the creator will receive a full refund on the cost of their ticket to the Auckland Flower Show.

"We want to encourage people who are passionate about gardening and the flower show to become involved," says Auckland Flower Show gardens convenor Jenny Pullar. "We're sure some amazing gardens will be created using the recycling bin as the base. They're a perfect growing medium, and really this is just another great use for a bit of plastic that's always been put to great use."

Please download the registration form to enter your recycle bin garden or email us.
