Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2012-2017
This document is the Waste Management and Minimisation Plan for the South Taranaki District (the Plan). Its purpose is to set out a strategic direction which will guide the future management and minimisation of waste.
The plan provides a vision, goals, objectives and specific strategies which encourage waste minimisation and a decrease in waste disposal in order to:
a) Protect the environment and public from harm; and
b) Provide environmental, social, economic and cultural benefits.
The vision and goals are consistent with, and give effect to the New Zealand Waste Strategy – Reducing Harm, Improving Efficiency, and the Waste Management and Minimisation Strategy for Taranaki.
