Waste management plan out for consultation

The Dunedin City Council's proposed waste management and minimisation plan has been released for public consultation.

People have until July 29 to make a submission on the proposed plan, which is on the council's website.

Council waste strategy officer Catherine Irvine said the plan cast the net wider than just the council's facilities and services, and took an overarching view of the city.

It presented an opportunity to consider how the council, waste and recycling operators, businesses and individuals could work together so Dunedin could have a zero-waste future, she said.
