Community focused

Transwaste places high priority on community engagement. Before the Landfill opened consultation commenced with Tangata Whenua and local residents and continues to this day. In addition to formal engagement activities, Transwaste welcomes schools, educational institutions, community groups and organisations to visit the Landfill to experience for themselves how a modern landfill operates, and learn more about how waste is safely managed in Canterbury. Transwaste is also giving back to the local community through the Kate Valley Landfill Community Trust, which supports charitable and community activities.
