Waste

This section provides information on waste in New Zealand and the tools available for waste management under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008. These include the waste disposal levy, waste minimisation funding and voluntary product stewardship accreditation.

If you require information on how to dispose, recycle or manage a particular waste type, please contact your local council. Disposal and recycling options vary between districts, so your council is best placed to advise you on your local options.
