Xtreme Zero Waste is a community enterprise contracted to provide various waste services on behalf of Waikato District Council. As well as diverting up to 77% of material received on site, the operation is Raglan's second largest employer, and provides year round services to over 3000 residents year round, and the over 5000 holidaymakers that visit over summer.

Your tour will leave the Claudelands Conference and Exhibition Centre, Hamilton at 1pm, arriving at Xtreme Zero Waste around 1:45pm. Co-founder, Rick Thorpe, will explain Xtreme Zero Waste's mission and operation as he takes you around the site. On the tour you will see:

  • The brand new HCU built to process residential food waste
  • Reuse shop
  • Timber yard and upcycling workshop
  • Metal yard
  • Recyclable commodities drop off and processing areas
  • Residual waste drop off

After a cup of tea, we'll make our way back to Hamilton via the airport arriving there at approximately 5pm, and back at the Claudelands Centre soon after.
