In 2020, Henderson Road Refuse Transfer Station (HTS) sent almost 11,000 tonnes of waste to the Ōmarunui landfill. 50% of waste dropped off at HTS would be recyclable, compostable, or reusable – for example food waste, recyclable plastics, scrap metal, clothing, cleanfill, and reusable or repairable second-hand goods. To help reduce the excessive amount of waste filling up our landfill, we need to work together with the community to improve the facility and save resources from being lost forever.
We want to convert the site from a refuse transfer station into a resource recovery centre. The project will go through various stages from early 2022 until 2023. It will be funded by the national waste levy, not rates payers’ money.
Before we kick off the project, we want to hear your ideas. How can we improve the facility and your experience onsite? What’s important for you? Give us your input by completing the form below and be in to win a home composting bin or worm farm. Survey closes on 5 November 2021.
