Waste Management and Minimisation Plan

All councils in the Wellington region have developed a new draft plan, and are consulting on this. The aims are to reduce the amount of waste produced, to better reuse waste resources, and to recycle more.

The Wellington region Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP) outlines the actions each council will take around waste management, and sets a primary waste reduction target for the region – to reduce the total quantity of waste sent to landfills by a third over the next 10 years.

The plan includes regional actions as well as each council’s local actions.

Consultation documents

Feedback is sought on the regional WMMP.  A summary of proposed regional and local actions are included in pages 22-23 of our annual plan consultation document.  Details of the plan and supporting information is in the following documents:

Information on the WMMP is also available on the Wellington region Waste Free, Together website.
