Submitting on the Draft Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2023

I am never a fan of reading dense local or national government documents but I know that my knowledge and experience can have a decent impact if I do make submissions. When I do these, I like to make it easier for others to as well, so here are my takeaways from the latest Christchurch City Council ๐——๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐˜ ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐— ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—•๐˜†๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜„ ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฏ:
  • Great they are updating to be in line with the Waste Minimisation Act, their Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2020 and Councilโ€™s Climate Resilience Strategy.
  • The Container Return Scheme may throw a bit of a spanner in for them as it hasn't been agreed how this will be rolled out. But they can sort that when it happens I guess.
  • They state they '๐™ˆ๐˜ผ๐™”' request Waste Management Plans from new and existing multi-unit residential developments. I think the should ๐™๐™€๐™Œ๐™๐™„๐™๐™€ one and it must include plans for recycling and organics.
  • I think it is great that they Council states that Construction and demolition Waste Management Plans and Event Waste Management Plans ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ๐˜ด ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ!

  • The official plastic bags used for inner city waste pose a large litter risk and create more waste by being a disposable bag. We would like to see reusable alternatives to these explored.
