About these metrics

​Auckland has an aspirational vision of zero waste by 2040.

We want to help people to minimise their waste to benefit our environment and to help position Auckland as the world's most liveable city. Visit Make the Most of Waste to find out more about this.

We aim to deliver waste services more efficiently, find better ways to recover and reuse resources, and send less waste to landfill.
