This Way Up

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:35 pm on 4 May 2017

Junk Run is a rubbish collection service with a difference. Covering the Auckland area, it collects all sorts of unwanted objects- from aquariums, office furniture and old telephones to kitchen units - and finds new homes for them. So rather than going to landfill, about three-quarters of what it collects ends up reused and redistributed to charities, repairers and recyclers. This Way Up's Simon Morton went to the Junk Run warehouse in Eden Terrace to meet Fionna Gotts.
