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 from participating local councils, Environment Canterbury, and sponsorship from O-I Glass NZ, Plasback and SULO contributed towards the cost of establishment of the website in 2015-2016.
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) to maintain and update the website.
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 it's own council website for information on kerbside collections, transfer stations, fees and charges and other waste minimisation information.
Regional councils also pay $200 per year for project membership.
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 Foundation Sponsors.
