The Ministry for the Environment has released it’s Waste Reduction Work Programme. This report sets out the Government’s work programme until 2023 to reduce waste as part of a transition to a low-carbon, circular economy.
Aotearoa New Zealand faces significant waste challenges. The Government has taken some steps to tackle these challenges, like banning single-use plastic bags and other items, but we need to do more. The report sets out the work the government is doing under five main objectives:
1 Building the foundations for a transformed waste system
2 Expanding investment in the sector
3 Introducing system-level change
4 Addressing individual material streams and products
5 Strengthening operational and compliance activity
