Household sector waste to landfill in New Zealand

Publication date:  November 2014
Publication reference number:  CR 192

In 2008, the Ministry for the Environment commissioned Waste Not Consulting to examine the waste produced by the household sector, with an emphasis on kitchen and garden waste and the environmental effects of their disposal.

This report was commissioned under the Ministry’s Household Sustainability Programme, now non-operational. This report may provide useful information to territorial authorities in developing their waste management and minimisation plans.
