Omarunui Landfill

Image of Omarunui Landfill. Omarunui Landfill received 84,000 tonnes of waste in the 2016/17 year. All of this waste is enough to cover 10 rugby grounds with 1 metre of rubbish!

Omarunui Landfill to the west of Taradale is Hastings District and Napier City Council’s jointly owned Landfill opened for operation in late 1988. It is a top quality landfill with extensive pollutant control and practices in place to ensure effective environmental protection.
