Waste Not has been at the forefront of providing waste minimisation consulting services in New Zealand since 1997. Originally operated by the Waste Not Auckland Charitable Trust (with initial funding from the Tindall Foundation and the Zero Waste Trust), Waste Not Consulting has been employee-owned since 2006 and remains one of the few specialist solid waste consultancies in the country.
Waste Not prides itself on delivering client satisfaction. We are committed to what we do and care intensely about the quality of the services we deliver. We believe this is reflected in the excellent long-term client relationships we have developed.
