Thanks for joining the conversation on the proposed Landfill extension

2 months ago

We’ve had lots of great questions coming in thick and fast from our open days, our Facebook event and this Let’s Talk page.

Hot topics include ecological impacts – with a focus on Ōwhiro Stream and the Taputeranga Marine Reserve, the capacity of the Landfill, wanting to know more about the alternative waste management technologies and how we’re assessing those, what we do with sewage sludge and waste minimisation (including green waste, recycling etc).

We’ll be going into more info on these hot topics here on Let’s Talk over the next few weeks. In the meantime if you didn’t attend the Facebook chat you can review the questions and answers here:

Next steps

The survey on what values are important to you closes on Friday 11 October. Tell us what you want us to focus on during our assessment of the alternative technologies.

We will be collating all your feedback on the values and using that to help us do the assessment. Before the end of November, we will have the results on that to share with you.

We will be holding more community engagement on the design of the chosen technology in late November and early December.

With the waste volume too little to make many alternative disposal methods economic, can regional scale disposal be considered - combining Hutt Cities and Porirua? PS I do realise that reduction of the waste stream thru minimisation of disposed packaging etc is vital - but the majority of the waste volume seems to be sewage sludge and Hutt produces quite a bit of that. A plant may be best located outside Wgtn city under that scenario - eg Silverstream???.
