Management of closed landfills and contaminated sites

Te tiaki papa tuku para kua katia me ngā wāhi kua tā kinohia

​We manage a number of closed landfills and contaminated sites.

Under the law, we aim to:

  • manage all human health and environmental effects of closed landfills and contaminated sites
  • manage contaminated sites and closed landfills to the best possible extent
  • manage contaminated sites and closed landfills according to the conditions of resource consents
  • restore closed landfills to be used as recreational open spaces and wildlife refuges
  • manage these sites through investigation, risk assessment, remediation, and monitoring procedures.
