Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019
Te Ture ā-Rohe Whakahaere me te Whakaiti Tuku Para 2019
The Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019 encourages a transformation in the way Aucklanders reduce, recycle, reuse and recover resources to help Auckland achieve a zero-waste future.
You should know
We recently made this Bylaw to replace the Solid Waste Bylaw 2012 after considering feedback from public consultation.
This Bylaw better manages and minimises waste, protects the public from health and safety risks and nuisance, and manages the use of council-controlled public places.
You can read the new Bylaw on this page, or see the Have your say page
to read the feedback summary.
What the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019 does
This Bylaw contains rules about:
appropriate disposal or discarding of waste, including use of donation collection bins and public waste bins
approvals for waste collectors and operators of waste management facilities, resource recovery facilities and donation collection bins, including approval applications and conditions
composting on premises and at resource recovery facilities
burial of dead animals on premises a person occupies or owns
storage and collection areas for disposed of or discarded material
waste management and minimisation plans for trading, event and filming activities in council-controlled public places and certain existing and planned multi-unit developments
obligations of people and businesses in relation to potential waste from shopping trolleys and unaddressed mail
