We're updating our waste plan and we want your views on how we can work together to reduce waste.

Have your say on the Draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2020

Consultation is open on the Draft Waste Minimisation and Management Plan 2020. 

You have until Monday 31 August 2020 to share your feedback on what the community, council and industry can do to reduce future waste.

We need to think differently about waste and look for new ways to re-use the things we currently throw away.  We all need to do our part - Council, individuals, businesses and the industry - to reduce waste and look after the environment for future generations.

The Draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2020 will provide the strategic direction for waste management in Christchurch for the next six years. Our vision is that Ōtautahi-Christchurch is a sustainable city, working towards zero waste and a circular economy.

We want your thoughts on the following

  • Do you think our draft plan does enough to manage and minimise waste to landfill?
  • Do you think our draft plan does enough to manage organics and recycling?
  • Do we need to do more?

A Waste Minimisation and Management Plan is a requirement under the Waste Management Act 2008 and establishes a vision, goals, targets and an Action Plan for waste in the city.
