Our district generates 28,000 tonnes of rubbish to the Atiamuri landfill each year, and an estimated further 20,000 t to landfills outside our district. About 28% of our domestic waste is recycled. Another 6,600 t of green and wood waste and 9,000 t of biosolids are diverted away from landfill. The introduction of kerbside recycling and other changes in the waste management infrastructure is planned to be operational in September 2016. This is expected to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by 40%. There is a significant proportion of ‘putrescibles’, largely food waste going to landfill. As of March 2016, Germany has the highest recycling rate in the world with 65% of waste being recycled. Objective 5 Mimiti atu ai ngā para, ka whai tikanga te wāriu We minimise our waste and recover its value http:/ / Where are we going? ‘Waste’ is precisely that, waste. Wasted resources, wasted energy. There are opportunities beyond the current Council operational plan to reduce the production of waste and this requires effort across our community. Our communities will understand and practice the principles of waste minimisation resulting in further reduction in waste to landfill, separate organic waste management to minimise greenhouse gas production, maximised recycling and resource recovery and development of opportunities to turn waste into energy.
