Bangor waste-recycling is a waste-management system that uses the energy of waste to generate electricity.
It’s designed to reduce the amount of water that’s used for electricity.
But it can also use waste to produce electricity for the local economy.
One of the most popular systems is Wilton’s Waste Energy Centre in Bangor.
Wilton waste-retailer Breda has installed more than 1,000 Wilton units in the past five years, and in the coming years, they plan to build more.
Ms Rodda said the Wilton unit was designed to recycle more than 100 per cent of its waste and was also more eco-friendly than conventional systems.
“There’s an extra energy and water savings,” she said.
Ms Nair said it was important to get the message out about recycling and encouraging people to buy waste-powered products.
“I think it’s great for businesses, especially for the businesses that don’t have a recycling facility, and the business owners that can’t have their waste collected,” she explained.
“That’s the big advantage of the waste-based business.”
Ms Naim said the industry was moving in the right direction and it was encouraging people with waste to be more environmentally conscious.
“The Wilton system is a good example of how waste can be transformed into energy,” she added.
The Wilton Waste Energy Center is located at the intersection of Rookstown Road and Bredacie Road, Bangor, and is the first in New Zealand to have a waste management system.
It is the only one of its kind in the country.
“It’s a great way to promote waste-water reuse,” Ms Narm said.
“Wilton will recycle the water for their waste-reuse programme.”
Wilton also runs a composting system that collects and distributes its waste in a series of buckets that are also used to collect waste from nearby houses and businesses.
“We have about 300 of these buckets,” Ms Rodra said.
