The community saying no to waste

Inside Xtreme Zero Waste’s collaborative success in Raglan.

Produced by Better Ancestors

Raglan’s Xtreme Zero Waste was started by Liz Stanway and Rick Thorpe and has evolved to become a community envisioned, created, and operated waste diversion program. Now, 80% of the community’s waste is reduced, repurposed or recycled and diverted from traditional landfill.

Aotearoa / New Zealand’s landfills are filling at an alarming rate. However, the work of organisations like Xtreme Zero Waste offers a real solution. While helping to protect the environment, community waste management systems are also providing jobs and resources back to the people.
