WHY ELIMINATE LANDFILLS?
Landfill takes hundreds of years to decompose rubbish which releases dangerous amounts of methane, carbon dioxide and other gasses that are toxic to our earth, into the atmosphere. Of New Zealand's total greenhouse gas emissions, 14% of carbon dioxide and 4% of methane come from landfill. At the moment, there is no environmentally safe alternative to landfill. Our vision is simple, that one day all of New Zealand will be able to dispose of waste without landfill.
