A set of recycling symbols were created for New Zealand in 2001. These symbols used to be referred to as the RONZ symbols but are now known as the New Zealand Recycling Symbols. The symbols were updated in October 2016.

There are currently 51 different recycling symbols. . If you would like assistance in deciding which symbols to use, please email sarahp@wasteminz.org.nz 

A factsheet on what signage to use for minimising waste at events has also been created and can be viewed here.
