Presentation Content Event Recycling in the Queenstown Lakes District § Where have we come from? § Where are we now? § Where are we going?
Where have we come from?
Where have we come from? § Event organisers submitted a Waste Management Plan & Event Recycling Form to obtain a resource consent; § Limited requirements in Event Recycling Form due to lack of waste minimisation infrastructure & services; § No requirements for Outline Plan Applications or events on QLDC land; § Limited waste minimisation education to assist Event Organisers; § Inconsistent waste management practices at events. Overall this achieved low levels of waste diversion
Drivers for Change? § Implementation of the Waste Management Strategy 2003: 43 waste minimisation initiatives to achieve 35% diversion target; § Initiative 19: ‘Ensure large scale events manage their own waste appropriately’; § Improved waste minimisation infrastructure, services and education in the District; § Planned organic waste kerbside collection service & processing; § Resource consents, bylaws, polluter-pays principle.
Why focus on Event Recycling? An increasing number of local, national and international events attracting large audiences and international media coverage: n NZ Golf Open; n Rippon Music Festival; n International Cricket; n. Wanaka n Rugby 7’s; n. Arrowtown n Warbirds Over Wanaka; n. Gibbston n Queenstown Winter Festival n. Wanaka Festival of Colour; Autumn Festival; Wine Festival; Iron Man
Zero Waste Toolkit for Events § Review the existing Event Recycling Form & Waste Mgt Plan; § Improve & redesign to make them more comprehensive; § Require ALL event organisers to achieve a minimum of 35% diversion at their events; § Incorporate feedback from Event Organisers and Key Stakeholders; § Continuous improvement as infrastructure and services evolve.
Consultation is Key! § Presented the One Stop Shop - Zero Waste Toolkit for Events; § Inform and engage the key people that organise events; § Consultation to get buy in and understand needs and limitations; § Buy into and help develop the working document; § Ongoing feedback and review to make continuous improvements; § Measuring success should be mandatory!
