Service Overview

Waste Management is more than just collecting waste.  We’re dedicated to safeguarding our environment by recovering waste and redirecting it back into further productivity effectively and efficiently.  Residential or commercial, we take care of your waste through our materials recovery facilities, transfer stations and modern landfills to produce things like wheelie bins, compost, and electricity. We even handle some of the country’s most hazardous waste, making sure the environment and community is safe.  Learn more about what happens to your waste here.


Redvale Energy Park

When you think of landfill, the modern day reality is a long way from the council ‘dumps’ of yesterday. Waste Management’s Redvale Energy Park and Landfill is a $200 million investment in clean – tech sustainable waste management innovation. There are no open rubbish mounds and scavenging seagulls at Redvale, and neither do we just ‘haul and bury’; far from it. We recycle as much as we can and repurpose it,  and material we can’t recycle is processed, contained and put to work producing electricity. In fact, Redvale is the largest renewable energy producer in Auckland. Learn more about Redvale and what we do at our landfill here.



The Leachate Boil-Up

Managing leachate, the natural by-product of organic decomposition, is crucial in reducing the environmental impact of a landfill.  Discover how Waste Management manages and neutralises leachate at their Redvale Energy Park.


Methane to Energy

Greenhouse gases are a major contributor to climate change, and are a natural by-product of the organic decomposition process.  Modern landfills capture these gases and convert them into clean electricity.  Learn more about this process and how it’s managed at Waste Management’s Redvale Energy Park here.


The choices we make

Modern landfills are contained systems whose output is reliant on the materials we put in.  To maximise the lifespan of the landfill and the resources extracted, landfills need organic materials.  In this video Tim Brake of the Redvale Energy Park explains how to get the most from our waste.

Waste Management is dedicated to safeguarding our environment to ensure New Zealand has a safe, clean and healthy future.  As a step towards this future, Waste Management has added electric vehicles to the light vehicle fleet.  ‘Powered by Waste’ is not just a tagline for this project; find out how we’re powering our electric vehicles using the organic waste sent to landfill.
























Waste Management leads the way in Driver Recruitment

New Zealand is in the midst of a driver shortage, with companies struggling to fill positions for skilled drivers in their fleets.  Waste Management, one of New Zealand’s largest fleets, has acknowledged the value of quality training in their staff, and are actively working in the market to attract prospective drivers to the industry.  This has been recognised in Truck and Driver Magazine, a leading trucking industry publication, who investigates the innovative ways Waste Management attracts and retains staff.

Waste Management’s Managing Director, Tom Nickels, discusses the future of waste in commercial businesses in the latest “FMCG Business” magazine, distributed in late 2015.  The FMCG landscape is changing as consumers become more socially and environmentally conscious, and companies need to adapt or suffer.  Proper waste management can be used as a tool for companies wanting to sway consumers, which includes not only waste minimisation, but materials choices and modern landfill management.
