Waste Advisory Board OIA

john luke made this Official Information request to Ministry for the Environment

The request was successful.

From: john luke

Dear Ministry for the Environment,

I noted on your website,


"The Waste Advisory Board meets for a full day (usually in Wellington) around four times per year. Additionally, members need time to prepare for these meetings and prepare advice for the Minister."

May I kindly ask you to supply the full meeting minutes for the Waste Advisory Board from 1st January 2021 to now. For transparency reason, I am also encouraging you and the board to regularly publish the board meeting minutes on your website like other government agency did.

I am also note some discrepancy for the current board member compare to the current Gazette notice. Can you please update your website to reflect the actual information.

Yours faithfully,

john luke
