Tin foil

  • unused or clean tin foil (no food contamination) from households can be included as part of the residential kerbside collection service that operates throughout the Nelson/Tasman region
  • businesses (including those that have tin foil that is contaminated with some chemicals  e.g. hair foils from hair salons) can recycle these with a local scrap metal dealer – see ‘Yellow Pages’ under ‘Scrap Metal Dealers’. Note: check with scrap metal dealers but generally the chemicals do not need to be washed off before recycling.
