Here you’ll find everything you need to know about recycling and rubbish, from what to put into your bins at home and when they are collected, to how to reduce waste in the education, business, and construction sectors.
The New Plymouth District Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (2023-2029) is the guiding document for achieving waste management and minimisation within the district.
Since the last plan was developed in 2017, the region has made significant progress with its actions to divert material from landfill through education and behaviour change, collaboration and new resource recovery services and infrastructure.
The 2023-2029 plan outlines the proposed strategic direction for our region and what actions we will take as a community to achieve our vision in the New Plymouth District of Zero Waste 2040: Empowering Taranaki to Achieve a Circular Economy. You can access and read the plan below.
