Low Waste Living

Our Low Waste Living series aims to inspire and encourage our community to reduce their waste.

  • Get information and ideas on how you can reduce your own waste
  • Connect with other like-minded people
  • Share ideas and resources
  • Learn about all of the amazing local businesses we have in our community supporting us to reduce our waste

Every one of us has the power to make change and help society move away from its reliance on single-use plastics by making different consumer choices!

Our low waste living events are held all over the Queenstown Lakes district, and Wastebusters partners with Sustainable Queenstown to deliver event in the Whakatipu.
