fight to abolish Dome Valley landfill gathers steam
Environmental groups and local iwi are banding together to fight the Dome Valley landfill, north of Auckland.
Chinese-owned, Waste Management New Zealand, bought the 1000 hectare site near Wellsford, and won resource consent from Auckland Council, to fill 60 hectares with rubbish.
A community group called "Fight The Tip" has joined forces with Ngāti Whātua and Ngāti Manuhiri to lodge appeals to the Environmental Court. So far nine appeals have been filed.
