Zero waste is our past and our future. The Whāingaroa community zero waste programme has been working hard for the last 22 years to achieve a 75-80% diversion of waste from landfill. Lets work collectively to achieve the last 20-25%.
We wouldn’t be able to be Xtreme Zero Waste without the aroha and epic mahi from this entire community. Thank YOU for working with us, washing and squashing, sorting your loads, shopping with us, and putting in the extra efforts to choose to reuse.
Here’s some of our Xtreme milestones and highlights over the past 22 years.
Being a part of the Xtreme Team means you’re a huge part of keeping Whāingaroa beautiful, clean and healthy. More than just a job on the way to the surf beach, working with us is physical and fun, with lots of local community interaction, and always with Papatūānuku in mind. We are a hardworking crew of 40 + humans, who care a lot about each other, and the environment around us. In our team there are always opportunities for leadership, growth, and innovation. School leavers get support in first employment like first aid training, drivers licenses, and other certifications.
We welcome you to join our whanau!
