  • Landfill closed and a Refuse Transfer Station established.
  • Landscaping of site, and trees are planted over landfill.
  • Community begin researching alternatives to landfill.
  • A wetland is developed by Whaingaroa Harbour Care. The old landfill leachate must passed through a set of ponds maintained by Xtreme Waste, followed by the wetland.
