Draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2023

Managing our waste for a better future.

We are reviewing our Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP) and want to hear your feedback on what we are proposing. 

In 2022/2023, we diverted 3,009 tonnes of waste material from landfill, however we still sent just over 4,578 tonnes to landfill. This equates to 298kg of waste per rateable property. 

We know that a lot of the waste that went into landfill could have been reused, recycled, or composted. 

We want to work together with our community to reduce the amount of waste being produced and reuse, recover and recycle as much as possible before it ends up in the landfill. 

The draft plan contains our vision for reducing and managing waste, the key waste issues for the Kaipara District and how we plan to address these. 

Your feedback will help us know if we are on the right track with the plan or not. 

Note you can give as much or as little feedback as you like. 

Feedback closes at 5pm on 6 October 2023.

Hearings are scheduled for 18-19 October 2023.
