Around eighty WasteMINZ members and colleagues gathered at the offices of Callaghan Innovations in Parnell, Auckland, for WasteMINZ’ Christmas networking event.

The atmosphere buzzed with conversation as members met up with old friends or made new introductions and connections. WasteMINZ Chief Executive, Janine Brinsdon, was delighted to announce the new Chair of the WasteMINZ Board, Wayne Plummer, appointed that day, and introduce board member Alice Grace. 

Event hosts, Callaghan Innovation, made two presentations on their ground-breaking R&D and consultancy work.  Mint Innovation then followed with a discussion of their own research and activities into a very particular e-waste challenge they are combating through ‘urban mining’.  

A huge thanks to everyone who came along and made the evening a resounding success – and especially to our hosts and speakers.


All three presentations from the evening can be found below.
