Our Council has adopted a new Waste Management and Minimisation Plan which includes an exciting and relevant new vision statement “Our Coromandel Communities – Taking action towards a circular economy and sustainable future”.

The plan sets out how we intend to manage the community’s waste in 2023-2029. It has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Waste Minimisation Act 2008.

The final plan is the result of consultation In February and March 20223 with iwi, members of our communities and our local resource recovery representatives. There were also public hearings in late March. 

The plan outlines how Council will work with residents, homeowners and businesses to achieve positive waste reduction outcomes.

The upgraded rubbish and recycling system introduced in September 2023, which includes a food scraps bin, is one of the many ways our communities can help reduce waste to landfill.

Please note: Funding of work programmes identified in the plan will be subject to Council’s normal Annual and Long-Term Planning processes.
