Where From – Where Now – Where to

Thirty years ago Jim had a dream! It was about setting up New Zealand’s first Trade Waste Workshop which he did and facilitated it for a number of years. With his extensive knowledge and experience of the New Zealand wastewater scene we are fortunate that Jim can take us on a journey of where we have come from, where we are today and where we are heading. Jim’s address will traverse some history; the local authority/trade waste discharger interactions; NZ’s Waste Strategy and Trade Waste Bylaws; the RMA journey; cleaner production pre-treatment and treatment needs; resource recovery; Māori culture considerations and pending water reforms.
