Buller District Council


We live in a stunning place so let’s care about our magnificent environment we call home.

The Buller District Council is committed to look after your district by providing resources, supporting initiatives, sparking off events, partnering with local organisations, and businesses, educating residents and sharing information.

Many residents already actively minimise their waste, recycle where possible, and make conscious decisions. No matter where you are on the journey to minimise your footprint the Buller District Council wants to support you to be a local hero and do good for our environment.

Key to improving Buller’s waste and recycling footprint is to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Your participation is essential to minimise our impact on our home and minimise material that will go to landfill and cannot be recycled.

To support you, businesses, and organizations in this endeavour, this page provides ideas and guidance on how you can make a difference – small or big – to reduce the impact on your home.

With your support, through your conscious decisions and actions, we not only can keep the Buller District beautiful, we can also avoid significant increase in the cost of dealing with refuse and recycling.

Our long-term vision is to have the community understand their waste consumption, their impact on the environment and commit to refuse, reuse, and recycle choices.

Through education, collaboration, and support the Council aims to move the district – our home – towards a circular economy operating sustainably and meeting climate and waste management standards.
