Waste and hazardous substances

As a nation, New Zealand creates a lot of waste yet 65% of the average rubbish bag could be recycled or composted. 

Waste is everyone's problem and we all need to take responsibility for the rubbish we create. We’ve set out rules for waste minimisation for Otago in our Regional Plan: Waste.

Waste disposal and recycling services operate throughout the region. Check the facilities available near you and help reduce the amount of rubbish sent to landfill sites. Contact your city or district council to find out about what recycling services are available in your area.
