The Waiuku & Districts Community Workshop Trust is one of the two owners of a subsidiary Charitable Company, Waiuku Zero Waste Ltd, which was developed to run the Waiuku Community Recycling Centre.

This centre diverts waste from landfill through reusing and recycling resources of all types including wood and metal through to bric a brac and furniture which are sold through an onsite shop called Waiuku Junktion. Profits from the business come back to the Trust to be used to further our aims and support the local area.

The Community Workshop will be setting up a number of workshops for the public to come and learn how to repair items, from wooden furniture through to welding or sewing using resources which are donated to the recycling centre. These should be started in 2018 once a new community building is built on site.
