Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019


Panel report on proposed new Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019:


Governing Body has adopted the proposal with changes in response to matters raised, including to: 

  • Allow composting on any premises where it is a permitted activity in the Auckland Unitary Plan, without requiring a bylaw approval;
  • Allow for burial of dead nuisance pests found adjacent to a person's property;
  • Better connect Bylaw purpose to the conditions council may impose on approvals; and
  • Clarify terminology and related information notes to better inform the public. 


The new Bylaw will come into effect on 25 October 2019.
