Waste Management and Minimisation Plan

Waikato District Council aims to introduce waste minimisation practices in all its operations and facilities. Our proposed vision is "Working towards zero waste for the Waikato district."

Rubbish – it clutters our cupboards, fills our bins, clogs our landfills. There’s only so much we can take when it comes to rubbish, and it’s time to figure out how to change things for the better. That’s the philosophy behind the Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (otherwise known as the WMMP, or the waste plan).

Every six years we must undertake a review of our Waste Management and Minimisation Plan. Our current plan expires this financial year (2017/18) and so we will seeking your feedback on our new draft plan by May.
