saveBOARD is working with local government and community groups to develop drop off points around the country for used beverage cartons. Listed below is our current list of drop off sites which will grow over time.

If you can't wait until we have a location near you; feel free to box up your used beverage cartons and send to us directly. Please post/courier to: saveBOARD, 30 Sunshine Ave, Te Rapa, Hamilton 3200

NOTE: All clean liquid paperboard cartons are accepted, such as Oat milk, Up & Go Breakfast drink through to Campbells Real Stock.

Please also remember to 'Open, Wash & Dry' your used cartons (you can leave lids on) so they don't go all smelly between drop off and delivery to our factory.
