Local Council Composting Services

Local councils can help you seek composting services in your area. Councils do not share the same guidelines. You should check what is, and perhaps is not, composted by your council. When seeking help for your business (which is where approx. 80% of landfill waste emanates from) your local council may provide only basic collection services and you may wish to consider independent collection services from companies listed in your Yellow Pages.

We encourage you to seek verification that your compostables are actually being composted, and to check if your local council and waste collectors accept all materials. A good reference source is the official waste industry association website WasteMINZ. There is also some statistical information available on the Ministry for the Environment website. Local council websites are shown below (please notify us if you find a broken or incorrect link):
