Become a Sponsor

You could feature on ONE PLANET, a leading NZ local government public information website on waste minimisation
A collaborative project between 20 councils across New Zealand, supported by WasteMINZ.
It is coordinated by Timaru District Council’s Waste Minimisation Manager Ruth Clarke, with editing help from Canterbury-based sustainability educator Anthea Madill.
Please note that all proceeds from sponsorship go towards continuing to develop the website resources and connect with schools around the country.

Council Partners

Council Partners have their four key service webpages linked to ‘My Council Services’ map-page on ONE PLANET website, typically: Kerbside Collection, Transfer Station hours, Fees and charges, Other local info. (Note that these heading labels can also be edited, on request)
