APPLYING THE WASTE HIERARCHY

TO ORGANICS

This session will explore the role of the waste hierarchy in addressing the issue of organic waste. Organic waste and how we choose to manage it ties onto broader issues such as food security/resilience, soil health and climate change. We’ll hear from practitioners involved in different parts of the organic waste cycle and discuss what needs to change in how Aotearoa approaches organics.
