Waste list

This section provides links to the New Zealand Waste List (L-Code). The L-Code was adapted from international lists and has been modified to reflect typical waste streams in New Zealand. The L-Code provides guidance on identifying wastes in a consistent manner and serves as the basis for record-keeping systems, particularly for hazardous wastes. 

Guidance on how to use the New Zealand Waste List can be found in the Guidelines for the Management of Hazardous Waste.

Choose the waste category below for information on specific waste streams for that category.
