Welcome to clean, green, New Zealand, whatever the excuse is for dumping all those bags.

Video removed by user?

Christchurch Airport responded to the video quick-smart, assuring travellers that the baggage was not 'unclaimed' at all, and was actually donated for a trial of a new baggage handling system installed at the airport, according to airport communications manager Monique Oomen.
Actually that is even funnier!

I would assume that they were being dumped as unclaimed baggage and to ensure no security measures are broken or MAF requirements they are simply destroyed ......... im more concerned of how or why you would not go claim your case back

and funnily enough I just got sent this link, seems like it was all out of contex

I think it's hilarious that the CEO of Christchurch Airport has no sense of humour and took offence. However, there's still no excuse for trashing 600 or so serviceable bags into the back of a dustcart like that. What is worse, anyone who saw the video in it's full glory will have seen that they were full and heavy cases; full of paper we're told.

How green is that?
