The Titā ki te titā kore project started with great enthusiasm, according to the Project Coordinator, Jessie Sword. From the first two days of the public drop-off, Jessie and her hard-working team at the Cook Islands General transport (CIGT) filled one 20-foot container, showcasing the community’s active participation in this initiative. 

National Environment Service (NES) Director, Halatoa Fua stated that he is pleased to hear of the level of support from the community and the interest garnered from people to dispose their legacy waste. We urge the public to make the most of this opportunity to ensure the responsible disposal of legacy waste – e-waste, whiteware and end of life vehicles. 

NES and CIGT jointly stress that illegal dumping at the site is unacceptable, and we are committed to maintaining a clean and environmentally responsible workspace throughout the duration of the project. We strongly advise the public to adhere to the established process, as bypassing it may lead to complications and challenges that could affect the project’s smooth execution. 

Stay tuned for updates on the upcoming Arorangi drop off locations, we will inform the public once confirmed. Dates for the remaining Puna’s on Rarotonga will be confirmed and announced in due course.
