Understanding how we choose to avoid, reduce and manage waste

We are always interested to better understand how we avoid, reduce or create waste. We regularly conduct surveys and commission research to inform our waste management and minimisation activities.


As part of the review of the Joint Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2019, NCC and TDC staff are gathering information on waste, recycling and other waste minimisation activities. 

We recently commissioned Reuse Aotearoa to undertake research on reuse activities in the hospitality and food industry in Nelson Tasman to help us understand what is happening in our region and future opportunities.
