Waste Management and Minimisation Plans

Under The Waste Minimisation Act 2008 councils are required to create and implement a Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP). The WMMP outlines the visions, goals and objectives for waste management and minimisation. View the current three Taranaki WMMPs below:

Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2023-2029

The three Taranaki district councils are currently reviewing the existing plans and developing new plans for 2023-2029. Engaging with Taranaki Whānau Whānui, key stakeholders, sectors and the wider community across Taranaki is a key part of this process. The three councils will be engaging with our communities collectively, but each council will have a separate WMMP based on this engagement. The process is outlined below.

WMMP Engagement and Planning Process:

We have completed the first stage, Where are we now?

Read the engagement report available here

Engagement for the second stage, Where do we want to be? will start on the 14th October. All groups in Taranaki will be available to help shape our vision and goals for the next six years. Keep a look out for an opportunity to have your say!

If you have any questions or want to be involved, please get in touch with us at contact.zerowaste@npdc.govt.nz
