Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

The en­vi­ron­ment, emis­sions, waste re­duc­tion and re­cy­cling come through as strong com­po­nents of this week’s Chron­i­cle. We have two opin­ion ar­ti­cles touch­ing on those themes as peo­ple be­come more aware of the need to go eas­ier on our en­vi­ron­ment and to take care of the world around us. En­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity con­sul­tant Gord Ste­wart writes about how the younger gen­er­a­tion is lead­ing the charge on ac­tion around cli­mate change. His ar­ti­cle looks at what New Zealand and its Gov­ern­ment is do­ing to raise aware­ness of cli­mate change and re­duce pres­sure on the en­vi­ron­ment. Mata­mata ward coun­cil­lor Adri­enne Wil­cock, in her ar­ti­cle, is ask­ing peo­ple for feed­back on the Joint Waste Min­imi­sa­tion and Man­age­ment Plan. The dis­trict is per­form­ing well when it comes to re­cy­cling but more work needs to be done. The man­age­ment plan re­views a set of ini­tia­tives in this area, pro­posed for the 10-year plan. Have your say.
