Omarunui Landfill is Hastings District and Napier City Council’s joint landfill. It is only open to commercial operators with a Waste Disposal License – it is not open to the public. Members of the public can take their waste to one of the local Refuse Transfer Stations.
A hazardous substance is any substance that may be explosive, corrosive, flammable, able to oxidise, toxic or eco-toxic. Most of us use hazardous substances every day at home and at work, but improper disposal of these substances can be an issue to environmental and public health.
Hastings District Council oversees a number of informative waste education programmes. We see waste as an ongoing social, economic and environmental problem – an issue that relates to everyone. Waste minimisation is an important initiative helping to ensure future sustainability.
