The National Environment Service (NES) and Cook Islands General Transport (CIGT) would like to announce the “Last Blasts for Rarotonga Legacy Waste Collection”. 

For those who missed the opportunity to be part of the project delivered in the villages, don’t worry – your chance to contribute to the sound management of waste is still here. Seize this opportunity and join us in making a difference! 

Having successfully completed the majority of the Puna’s on the island, the initiative has resulted in the collection of over 100,000 kilograms of waste. Currently, 30 containers, comprising both 20-foot and 40-foot units, have been exported to New Zealand, ensuring proper and sustainable waste management. The project stands as a testament to its success, earning positive feedback from both residential, commercial sectors and other countries within the Pacific Region.

The NES and CIGT strongly urge the public to discontinue all acts of illegal waste dumping at the drop-off sites within the village. 

We would like to advise the public that CIGT is the exclusive contractor for the project, and no other contractors are engaged in this initiative. Drop-off sites and dates are to only come directly from CIGT and NES office to avoid miscommunication.

We appreciate your patience as we work collectively to deliver this project.
