Solid Waste Bylaw 2012 (to be replaced by the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019 effective 25 October 2019)
Ture ā-Rohe Para Mārō 2012
The Solid Waste Bylaw encourages a transformation in the way Aucklanders reduce, recycle, reuse and recover resources.
What the Solid Waste Bylaw does
The bylaw provides for a licensing system for waste collectors and operators of waste facilities. The bylaw also provides the framework for operational controls around the collection, transportation and disposal of waste.
The licensing system:
- optimises resource recovery
- reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfill
- allows us to monitor achievement of waste minimisation targets, based on waste data.
The bylaw also lays out:
- measures to ensure the separation of domestic waste
- terms and conditions for kerbside collection service of domestic waste
- waste management requirements for events and multi-unit developments
- management of public litter bins and nuisance arising from waste
- management of the deposit of unaddressed mail, dumping of items at donations bins and shopping trolleys.

The Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019 will be effective from 25 October 2019. The Solid Waste Bylaw 2012 will remain in effect until then.
We made detailed operational controls under the Solid Waste Bylaw 2012, according to our
Waste Management and Minimisation Plan.
