Changes are coming to how national waste data is collected


The Government has approved regulations that will improve the quality and availability of waste data. The information collected will help them shape future waste reduction policies.  The changes will take effect from 1 July 2024.  

The changes include:

  • Facility operators will need to report on the materials ‘activity source’, such as construction, household or business waste.

  • For facility operators, there will also be changes for volume-to-weight conversion factors. For sites that do not have a weighbridge, the categories for types of waste or diverted materials will be expanded on.

  • Territorial authorities will need to report on their levy spending, as well as their waste minimisation activities.  

These regulations amend the information requirements and calculation and payment of waste disposal levy regulations made under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008.  


November to Christmas Collection Site Dates

Be sure to get your recovery cylinders in ahead of these final dates so that they are collected and returned before Christmas.
