WasteMINZ is the largest representative body of the waste, resource recovery and contaminated land sectors in New Zealand. Formed in 1989 it is a membership-based organisation with over 1,000 members – from small operators through to councils and large companies.
We are the authoritative voice on waste, resource recovery and contaminated land in New Zealand and seek to achieve ongoing and positive development of our industry through strengthening relationships, facilitating collaboration, knowledge sharing and championing the implementation of best practice standards.
We work closely and collaboratively with industry partners, the Ministry for the Environment, other government agencies, and local government on advancing waste and contaminated land management issues. We also gather feedback on topical issues and key areas of interest, which are incorporated into our continuing professional development programme which includes the WasteMINZ annual conference, workshops and seminars.
WasteMINZ is governed by a board that consists of six members who are elected by the organisation’s financial members. Board members serve for a term of two years. You can read more about our board here.
