Waste audits.

We can help you identify what’s in your waste and what doesn’t need to be in there! We work together with businesses, organisations, schools and families, to help find out what can be reduced, reused, recycled or composted. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on your groups’ collective impact heading to landfill, to learn about alternatives, and improve waste (and purchasing) systems in your home or workplace.

Waste audits are beneficial in many ways not only for reducing your group’s impact on the environment, but also saving $$$, enhancing your organisation’s brand and reputation, and lifting team morale as your whanau works together for the great good.


Just like your event is special and unique, we can tailor event waste services specific for you. In addition to raising a positive event image, you can make a real difference in waste to landfill!

Reusable service ware

Before thinking about event waste, we invite smaller events to consider reusable serviceware. Washing and reusing cups, plates, cutlery and napkins we can ensure your event is truly zero waste (and adds a bit more fun and connection over the teatowels).

We have a kit of decorations and crockery for hire. Get in touch with our zero waste party goer department.

  • Events stations $100 – Includes 3 wheelie bins
  • Organics, Recycling, Landfill (240L each)

Construction & Demolition

Construction and demolition waste makes up to 50% of New Zealand’s total waste going to landfill, on average 90% of this material could be recycled. Each home constructed generates an average of four tonnes of waste. XZW is conducting a research project around construction and demolition waste in Whāingaroa, with funding support from Waikato Regional Council and Rangatahi Limited.

By making better decisions around materials when designing houses we can reduce the waste produced, and the waste that we do have can be sorted into sometimes valuable resources for our community.

Many of the awesome tradies in Raglan’s community are already sorting their waste and bringing it up to our site – we have loved checking out what systems they have already put in place on their sites.

We would love any suggestions you have for reducing and reusing construction waste, please contact: emma@xtremezerowaste.org.nz
