RECORD RECYCLING PROGRAM
Vinyl records are technically unrecyclable because of their paper centre labels contaminating the otherwise reusable PVC. As a consequence dud records usually end up in the landfill — but Holiday Records is here to change that.
We believe that as New Zealand's only manufacturer of vinyl records, we owe a duty of care to our natural environment and the potential harm caused by products that we create. This means doing our bit to ensure those records that aren't being used don't end up in the ground and can instead be reused elsewhere.
Introducing Holiday Records Record Recycling Program — bring in your unloved 12" vinyl records and we will recycle them into PVC piping with our friends at Marley New Zealand — helping close the loop in the manufacturing process and lifecycle of our products.
Please contact us to arrange a time to make a delivery.
If you have any dud 12" vinyl records at home that are destined for the landfill feel free to bring them into Holiday Records so we can facilitate their safe recycling.
We do ask that they are removed from their covers (as you can recycle these in your home recycling) and boxed up.
Please contact us first to arrange a time to make a delivery.
Used PVC is reusable — just not with paper embossed into its surface like that of all vinyl records.
We have designed and built a custom machine whose only purpose is to forcefully punch out the centre labels.
This means the PVC can be recycled by our friends down the road at Marley New Zealand.
