This is our second Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP).
It sets out how Council believes we, as a community, should be managing and minimising the waste in the district – not just household waste, but the waste that comes from our businesses and industries too.
This is something that we are required to do at least every six years under the Waste Minimisation Act, which came into force in 2008. The first part of the process is to produce a new Waste Assessment
(PDF, 1.1MB), which pulls together all the information we can access about what waste produced in the District, and where it currently goes. From this information, we can identify the key areas where, as a District, we could be managing or minimising waste better.
Our current Opotiki District Council Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018 went out for public consultation on 25 April 2018 and after receiving submissions and holding a hearings meeting on 12 June the final plan was adopted at an Extra Ordinary Council meeting on 30 June 2018 at the same time as Council's 2028-2028 Long Term Plan.
