Talking Trash with Junk Run Episode 2 – Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Restore recycling and resuse shop in Auckland.

Welcome to the second episode of Talking Trash with Junk Run. Today in this short video we go skip diving and find some old commercial carpet tiles destined for landfill. Old flooring going to landfill is a big problem- with no carpet recycling programmes currently available in New Zealand. We take you to meet Conrad La Pointe CEO of Habitat for Humanity who are a charity that can reuse old carpet tiles for needy families and for community projects in the wider Auckland region. He passes on some hints and tips to consider when getting a new office fitted out, and how to think about what could happen to those carpet tiles once they are finished with and uplifted again in the future.
