WasteMINZ will be hosting two webinars for our members, one for the Emissions Reduction Plan (ERP) and one for the Waste Strategy and legislation, with MfE presenting an overview of the proposals and answering your questions.

The waste strategy webinar will be 10:00am-12:00pm Thursday 28 October. Click here to register. The ERP webinar will be 12:00pm-2:00pm Monday 1 November. Click here to register for the ERP webinar.

The Ministry for the Environment has released two consultation documents: the first detailing New Zealand’s first ERP and the second outlining the New Zealand Waste Strategy along with proposed changes to the Waste Minimisation Act 2008 and the Litter Act 1979.

The changes proposed in these two documents have the potential to transform the future of not only the waste sector but each of WasteMINZ sector groups, the products we utilise and how we manage our resources within our organisations and our homes.
