A hub where change happens

Logo NorthcoteZeroWaste HubWorking alongside Eke Panuku, Kaipātiki Local Board and Auckland Council, the Zero Waste Hub Northcote has been set up to serve the community through education, support and collaboration.

This innovative programme has grown from a desire by mana whenua to see their aspirations realised in relation to Para Kore / Zero Waste for Te Ara Awataha - Northcote Greenway programme. Kaitiaki representatives oversaw development of a cultural indicator framework Take Mauri Take Hono. This framework has created the driver to support all stakeholders to come together seeking to restore the mauri of the Awataha waterway, as well as the land and the people in Northcote. The framework also identifies Para Kore / Zero Waste as a key indicator for success, creating a focus on achieving the goal of Zero Waste 2040 in the Northcote town centre and surrounding residential and business area.
