Update on the proposed Landfill extension - Level 3



COVID-19 alert Level 3 means much the same for us as the Level 4 lockdown did.

Rubbish collection is ongoing, and the Landfill is open to commercial account holders but closed to everyone else. Kerbside recycling continues to be stopped under Level 3, but you can find some good tips on how to reduce your waste here.

Like many of you, most of our team is continuing to juggle working from home with our other family responsibilities.

We are continuing with our Landfill extension plans remotely, although some investigation work is temporarily on hold, as site visits are required.

At this stage we’re anticipating lodging resource consents mid-year, but this does depend on how long the current restrictions are in place.

We will continue to give you updates and, in the meantime, if you’re got any questions please feel free to get in touch by email Landfill@wcc.govt.nz

    We’re about to start our next round of community engagement on the proposed extension of the Southern Landfill.

    The assessment of different types of waste management alternatives concluded that extending the Landfill remains the most viable solution for now.

    To progress work, we need to do a variety of technical reports to help with the design of the extension and to support our resource consent application that will be lodged in 2020.

    We’ll be holding public drop-in sessions at the start of December to explain how the decision was made and to seek input on the proposed technical studies.

    Drop in sessions:

    Sunday 1 December: 11am to 1pm, Brooklyn Community Centre, 18 Harrison Street, Brooklyn

    Sunday 1 December: 2pm to 4pm, Owhiro Bay School Hall, 96 Happy Valley Road, Owhiro Bay

    Tuesday 3 December: 11.30am to 1.30pm, Facebook Live Q&A, Wellington City Council Facebook page

    Tuesday 3 December: 4.30pm to 6.30pm, Penthouse Cinema, 205 Ohiro Road, Brooklyn

    Wednesday, 4 December: 11.30am to 1.30pm, Wellington City Council, Level 16, 113 The Terrace, Wellington Central

    If you can't make a session but would like further information, contact us by email landfill@wcc.govt.nz or give us a call on (04) 499 4444.
