The population of Wellington city is expected to grow by 50,000 to 80,000 over the next 30 years, so we need better ways to manage and reduce our waste in preparation for that.
The bylaw will mean some changes to the way we do things. But it will help reduce the city’s carbon footprint over time – and benefit all Wellingtonians.
Bylaw and Controls
This bylaw replaces Part 9 (Waste Management) of the Wellington City Council Consolidated Bylaw 2008.
In accordance with the bylaw, additional controls apply in relation to solid waste management, collection and disposal and the use of the Southern Landfill.
