Waste Minimisation

The Waste Management Minimisation Plan 2018-2024 for the Gisborne district.

Council has an important role in managing waste, reducing the harm waste can cause, and encouraging communities and businesses to reduce waste.

Through the Waste Management Minimisation Plan (WMMP) Council has committed to these district-wide waste minimisation targets: 20% reduction in the total waste sent to Class1 landfills by 2024; 40% decrease in organic waste by 2024 (kerbside collections) and 20% increase in recycling by 2024.

The 2017 Waste Assessment describes the waste situation in the Gisborne district and is the planning foundation for the WMMP.
