This consultation sets out three proposals to transform recycling in Aotearoa New Zealand:  

1 Container Return Scheme 

2 Improvements to household kerbside recycling 

3 Separation of business food waste 

These three proposals are part of a longer-term shift toward a circular economy, where packaging is made of materials that maintain their value, are easy to recycle sustainably and have a low impact on the environment. 

Consultation opened on 13 March 2022 and will close at 11:59pm on 22 May 2022.
