Rethink, reduce, reuse, recycle and dance!

For anyone that hasn’t seen the new Wastebusters movie ad – here it is! Of course we’d still recommend a night out at Cinema Paradiso to see it in full-screen glory (and to enjoy a home-made cookie or ice-cream). A massive thanks to Rachel Erichsen and the DANCE OUT LOUD School of Dance crew who made us look more coordinated than we really are, to Joe Murdie from The Film Crew Ltd who stayed calm no matter what crazy ideas we came up with, and especially to the Wastebusters crew who made it all work. Love you all!

Mr Manly – the Wastebusters cat

Meet Mr Manly, our new Wastebusters cat. Mr Manly is 10 years old and Queenstown Cat Rescue  helped rehome him. He is doing a great job of keeping down rats and mice, who were making the most of our catless status. He’s also a master of cuddles and even enjoys  getting his belly rubbed.

Mr Manly occasionally has to retire to the dress-up wardrobe for some quiet time. Otherwise he enjoys gentle cuddles with our visitors, and is settling in to his new life at Wastebusters very happily.

Scissor Sisters save stuff from landfill

These lovely ladies are part of our crew of Scissor Sisters (aka the Cotton Rippers) who have been coming in to Wastebusters for 18 years to cut up cotton rags which we sell for all sorts of cleaning uses. If you need 100% cut cotton rags, you can buy a large bag full for only $7. The bags of rags are now in one of the containers in the yard – ask our friendly staff if you can’t find them. Thanks Scissor Sisters for finding another life for all those old sheets, pillow cases and t-shirts.
