Eunomia worked with the WasteMINZ TA Forum to develop a Local Government Waste Manifesto.  The Manifesto, released on 22 January 2018, sets out five key actions for Government that will enable real reductions in waste to landfill and reduce the costs borne by councils and their communities.  The five key elements are:

  1. Review the New Zealand Waste Strategy to set a clear programme for action
  2. Expand the Waste Disposal Levy and progressively raise the levy to reduce waste to landfill
  3. Officially adopt the National Waste Data Framework to enable better planning and monitoring
  4. Introduce a Container Deposit Scheme to lift recycling rates and reduce litter and marine pollution
  5. Declare tyres, e-waste and, agrichemicals and plastics as priority products
