The government is current seeking input into two super important issues:
- Te kawe i te haepapa para: Taking responsibility for our waste
- a new waste strategy (consultation open until 10 December 2021)
- Te hau mārohi ki anamata: Transitioning to a low-emissions and climate-resilient future
- an Emissions Reduction Plan (consultation open until 24 November 2021).
Zero Waste Network and The Rubbish Trip have prepared short guides to help those wanting to make quick submissions, and comprehensive guides for those wanting to give a full submission.
As a member of Zero Waste Network Aotearoa, Wastebusters helped craft these guides and we encourage our communities to make a submission on both proposals – to make them better, make them fit for purpose, and help bring about real change. To zero waste and beyond!!
Find the submission guides and consultation papers on Zero Waste Network’s website.
