Rubbish and Recycling
Rotorua Lakes Council is on a mission to:
- Reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill, in particular the amount of food and garden waste
- Reduce the amount of contamination in our recycling streams.
You can find out more by reading our Waste Management and Minimisation Plan.

The Waste Management & Minimisation Plan (WMMP) is a guiding document. It describes the vision, goals and targets for waste minimisation in Rotorua, and outlines an action plan to achieve the desirable outcomes. Under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008, councils must prepare and adopt a new WMMP at least every six years.
