Recycled Organics - Position Statement

Waste Authority Oct 2019

The Waste Authority (the Authority) was established on 6 May 2008, superseding the Waste Management Board. The former Waste Management Board issued a Position Statement on Recycled Organics in February 2008 outlining its view that the diversion from landfill and beneficial use of organic waste was a priority.

Several regional councils operating alternative waste treatment (AWT) facilities and members of the waste and composting industries, requested that the Authority release the previous Waste Management Board’s Position Statement on Recycled Organics for comment prior to the Authority releasing a similar policy document. The Authority released a draft Position Statement on Recycled Organics for stakeholder comment for three months (until 30 June 2009), with a view to adopting a revised edition as an Authority policy document.
