Kia Ora and Welcome!


At the Environment Centre Hawke's Bay, we offer information on sustainability, run courses and events, sell worms and worm farms, collect dead batteries, printer toners, fluorescent lights, coffee pods, mobile phones and e-waste (electronic waste) and much more for recycling and safe disposal. 


You can also view our demonstration urban backyard (plants, veges, herbs, rainwater tanks, working worm farm and compost bins). Inside we have plenty of information on energy efficiency and solar power, along with lots of sustainability related products for sale.


Come and visit us at 1004 Karamu Road, Hastings to find out more about how you can help yourself and Hawke's Bay to become more sustainable.

Would you like to recycle your old television for just $5?  

Are you a Hastings District resident? 


In partnership with the Hastings District Council, we will recycle your TV responsibly.

Just 3 simple steps:  


1. Bring proof of residence (such as a telephone or power bill)

2. Bring proof of person (such as a drivers license or credit card)

3. Bring your old TV and pay $5 (max. of 3 per resident)


By diverting your TV from landfill, you are preventing these toxins from leaching 

into the soil or groundwater and preserving the health of our precious ecosystem.
