Solid Waste Management (Collection and Disposal)
We undertake this activity to ensure that the natural environment is protected from detrimental effects of solid waste disposal, and that the waste diversion and disposal needs of the District community are met.
We are required under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008 (WMA) to promote effective and efficient waste management and minimisation with the District. A key part of doing this is to adopt a Solid Waste Management (Asset) and Minimisation Plan (SWaMMP) - you can view this document here.
We also have an obligation under the Health Act 1956 to ensure that our waste management systems protect public health.
