About This Site
Origins and Funding
The seed funding for this project was from the Canterbury Waste Joint Committee over 3 years from 2012-2014. The information was originally presented online as an ebook created by Media Kitchen. The shift to website was made in 2016, assisted by WasteMINZ.
Annual funding is from participating local councils, Environment Canterbury, Environment Southland and sponsorship from O-I Glass NZ, Plasback (Agpac) ,and SULO (VIP) contributed towards the cost of establishment of the website. In 2019 they are Gold sponsors (see information below), recently joined by Waste Management NZ Ltd
The website is a collaborative project co-funded by local and regional councils and commercial enterprises. The funding is used to contract a writer (Rhys Taylor 03 6938726) and other help to maintain and update the website, with some technical support from Timaru District Council webmaster.
Local unitary, district and city councils pay $200 per year for project membership. Each council is then live on the 'my council' page and has four links direct to its own council website for information on kerbside collections, transfer stations, fees and charges and other waste minimisation information. Link titles are editable.
Regional councils also pay $200 per year for project membership, also invoiced annually.
Commercial sponsors contribute funding at Gold, Silver or Bronze sponsor levels and may supply photos. Information relating to sponsors will be generally identified with a photo or logo. See below for our current Sponsors. Advertsing is strictly limited.
