Working together

The environment underpins everything from our economy to our health and wellbeing. We all need to work together to protect our environment, so it is a safe, clean place to live, and its natural resources are maintained for and by future generations.  

Here, we are working alongside Waikato Regional Council, using measures like water conservation and management, providing rubbish collection services and by monitoring resource consents. Combined with environmental protection work carried out by other organisations, groups and the community, we aim to ensure the long-term sustainability of our environment.


As our district is within the Waikato region, we need to be aware of and respect the Maaori world view in relation to protecting our environment.

Maaori believe there is a deep kinship between humans and the natural world. This connection is expressed through kaitiakitanga, meaning guardianship and protection – a way of managing the environment.
