PARTY CENTRAL: Andy Farmer, top, Boz Stelle and Gemma Hyett have fun in The Fridge, their portable nightclub made from a recycled cooler, while Nick Tam adds finishing touches to its outside.

A Christchurch recycling group has built one of the world's smallest "nightclubs" from items destined for the dump.

Recycled Sound System hoped to promote recycling by encouraging waste-material use in "fun and innovative ways", spokesman Andy Farmer said.

The Fridge nightclub, which has a dance floor measuring 1.1 metres by 2.1m, was constructed from a Christchurch pub refrigerator.

"This is a great example of how innovative recycling can be both fun and good for our environment," Farmer said.

"We hope this inspires others to have fun thinking creatively before they send things to landfill."

The Fridge will travel to Gisborne's Rhythm & Vines concert for New Year's Eve and feature Christchurch DJ Bazurka.

Farmer said the "club" could fit up to "11 and half people", but was only allowed five.
