Raglan gains on ‘zero waste’ goal

Waikato District Council has partnered with Xtreme Zero Waste to deliver the Whaingaroa Organic Waste Diversion to Compost project, which aims to divert around 120 tonnes of waste from landfill each year.

Government has allocated $150,000 from its waste minimisation fund to support the Waikato District Council in implementing food waste collection, diversion and composting services in the Raglan community.

Xtreme Zero Waste, which also operates the weekly kerbside collections and runs the Raglan Resource Recovery Centre, is already diverting approximately 75 per cent of Raglans waste from landfill. The new food waste collection, diversion and composting service will bring it even closer to its ‘zero waste’ goal.
