Yes, there is recycling on Moorea. The island appreciates your compliance with the recycling instructions posted in the kitchen and on the green trash containers.
The green trash containers are for the following recyclable items (clean and empty containers only):
- Cardboard boxes and packaging
- Plastic bottles with caps
- Metal cans
- Aluminum soda cans
Recyclables are collected regularly. Items do not need to be sorted - everything on the above list goes into the green bin "bac vert". Do not put your recyclables into plastic bags.
There is a large green recycling receptacle next to Supermarket Are in Paopao for glass bottles. Batteries and oil can be recycled at the Mobil station.
