Last year, we took home the title of New Zealand’s Most Beautiful City and the Supreme Award at the Keep New Zealand Beautiful Awards and won this Resene-sponsored mural.
Council ran a competition in August 2021 calling all local artists. The artists were asked to submit designs that showcased the principles of the Waste Hierarchy to inspire the community to save resources from going to landfill by reducing, repairing and reusing.
The winner, Stan Mans, was chosen by a panel in September 2021, but Covid-19 lockdown meant he couldn’t start straight away. Stan finished the mural just before Christmas 2021 and did a wonderful job of bringing the waste hierarchy to life.
The completion of the mural marks the beginning of long-term project that will see Council working with community to change the Henderson Road Refuse Transfer Station, commonly referred to as ‘The Dump’, into a Resource Recovery Centre where materials are diverted from landfill, recycled, upcycled, fixed and where possible put back into the local economy.
