Waste Minimisation


Hi, I’m Emily - Council’s new waste minimisation educator. 

I’m going to be helping Ruapehu communities understand our waste challenges and giving people simple, practical ideas and actions which they can make in their own life to reduce the amount of waste they produce.

I’m also going to be encouraging you all to take part in campaigns to help protect our environment. The first of these is plastic free July where you challenge yourself to refuse any single use plastic items such as checkout bags, straws, etc.

We are also going to be holding a series of fun, free Plastic Free July Workshops where people can learn to reduce their use of single-use plastics and gain new skills such as how to make beeswax wraps to eliminate the use of cling film.  

Please sign-on to the plasticfreejuly.org challenge and come along to one of the fun, free Workshops!​
