Waste in Waipā
On average every Waipā household sends 468kg of waste to landfill each year. Reducing your household waste is not only better for the environment but will reduce the amount you pay for rubbish disposal. Making a dent in the rubbish your create is actually pretty easy. Take a look in your own rubbish bin, find out what you are throwing out and see if you can avoid creating that waste in the first place, reduce the amount of waste you create, or can you reuse, repurpose or regift it.
