No Time to Waste | Tiakina a Papa Mimiti te Para

Mimiti te Para! is our plan for reducing waste to landfill, and minimising the harmful effects of waste in our district. Its official name is a Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP). The plan contains an overview of what sort of waste issues we’re dealing with in our district, and our goals, objectives, and our action plan to achieve them.
