Waste Management and Minimisation Plan

The DCC has a responsibility under the WMA to ‘promote effective and efficient waste management and minimisation’ and, for this purpose, to ‘adopt a waste management and minimisation plan’.

The Plan has been informed by a district-wide waste assessment. The full and final waste assessment report is appended to the Plan.

As well as the waste assessment, the DCC has consulted widely with stakeholders and special interest groups to plan and prioritise actions which will progress waste minimisation efforts and make improvements to waste management practices.

The Plan is supportive of a collaborative approach which will strengthen working relationships. The position taken understands that, to achieve zero waste, all factions must work together purposefully.

How the Plan will achieve its community outcomes will be presented in the DCC’s Long Term Plan (LTP). This includes how the DCC will fund waste and diverted material services and facilities over the LTP period.

Introduction

Vision, goals and guiding principles

This page provides information on Vision, goals and guiding principles.

Other DCC strategies

While the Plan will ultimately be underpinned by the DCC’s Environment Strategy, it relates to all DCC strategies and plans.

Implementing the plan

The Plan must include the DCC’s and other organisation’s collection, recovery, recycling, treatment and disposal facilities and services. As a result, the DCC’s role in promoting effective and efficient waste management and minimisation within Dunedin has changed.

Funding the plan

The DCC funds its waste management and minimisation facilities, services and educational programmes in a variety of ways.

Performance indicators

The effectiveness of the Plan’s objectives, policies and methods will be measured and monitored against performance indicators. Performance indicators will be reviewed and reported annually via the Annual Plan.

Summary of waste assessment

In 2012, the DCC conducted a waste assessment to determine the existing provision of waste and diverted material facilities and services in Dunedin. It also identified the issues and demands that need to be addressed in the development of the Plan, including the DCC’s intended role in meeting the forecast future demand.

Summary of future demands

The Waste Assessment identified areas for improvement and made forecasts of demands for the future provision of waste management and minimisation services and facilities in Dunedin.
