A Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP) shows us how you plan to deal with waste generated by your event.

A WMMP must be submitted as required under the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw for all events held on Council land. Waste management and minimisation isn’t just the collection of waste from an event venue, it’s managing the event waste to keep as much as possible away from landfill.

It is important you include a site plan with your WMMP. The site plan should indicate where you’ll be placing your waste stations and how many bins you’ll be using in each waste station.

Waste stations

A waste station consists of two or more bins – usually a bin for general/landfill waste and a bin for recyclable items. The best option is to include a third bin for organic material (including food/compostable serveware).

Submitting your plan online

Step 1: Complete our Waste Management and Minimisation form – it should take approx. 20 mins.

Step 2: Once completed, your plan will be sent to Auckland Council’s Waste Solutions team for review. Please allow 10 working days for processing.

Here’s a recent example, so you can see what information is required.
