West Auckland Resource Centre

Logo for West Auckland Resource Centre

The West Auckland Resource Centre was initially set up in 1977 by an enthusiastic group of like-minded people concerned at the large amount of valuable materials being dumped, when they could be reused by community organisations to support the continuing education of children and adults. The Centre became a Charity in 2009 and has been housed in various buildings and survived the numerous shifts around the local area to its current site in Seabrook Avenue, New Lynn, Auckland. Our ultimate goal is to operate a recycling facility that will house bulk storage, sorting and distribution, a venue for educational workshops and an information exchange on the creative uses of recycled materials. We accept donations from the public during our opening hours and have established strong connections with local businesses where we offer a pickup service using our van. The beneficiaries of the West Auckland Resource Centre Trust (WARC) are any individual or group involved in reusing valuable materials to create a circular economy and divert waste from landfill. As well as those involved in creative or educational programs.
