We're delighted to be a participating retailer in the initiative of our reusable coffee cup brand Chunky to not only stop the use of single-use plastic bottles and throwaway cups. But also provide an option to recycle stainless steel and aluminium bottles and cups, which ultimately also end up in landfill.
In an effort to be better humans and not turn a blind eye to the consequences of our actions, Chunky's Bottle Recycling Initiative accepts not just their own but ALL other stainless steel and aluminium bottles and reusable cups.
How to recycle your used stainless steel or aluminium bottle with the #bechunkyrecyclinginitiative
Drop off your old stainless steel or aluminium bottle to us here at Milly's, one of Chunky's participating retailers. NOTE: This can be ANY brand, not just Chunky. It’s all about diverting as many bottles and cups from landfill as possible.
Chunky delivers the bottles to the nearest member of the NZ Association Metal Recyclers in New Zealand; or the Australian Metal Recycling Industry Association (AMRIA) in Australia. Job done.

Circular economy, anyone? We’re proudly partnering with the NZ Association of Metal Recyclers and the Australian Metal Recycling Industry Association (AMRIA) on this project. We reckon they have the right idea when it comes to scrap metal as they see it as a resource rather than waste.
So, if your reusable bottle or cup had a nasty run-in with a car tyre or you bought some other brand and it’s just not holding up (it’s okay, no judgement here), then bring it into one of our retailers and we will sort it. We cover the cost, no charge to you, amigo.
