OVERVIEW:

This Committee has responsibility for oversight of Council’s environment and climate change response.

The Committee is aligned with the Environment & Sustainability Directorate.

Its areas of focus are:

§   Oversight of Council’s plan to reach Carbon Zero, including raising awareness of climate-related issues

§   Developing and implementing climate and environmental policies and plans including ecology, biodiversity and biosecurity matters

§   Waste and recycling

 

PURPOSE:

To develop, implement, monitor and review strategies, policies, plans and functions associated with environmental and climate change activities.

 

DELEGATIONS FOR THE COMMITTEES AREAS OF FOCUS:

        All powers necessary to perform the Committee’s responsibilities including the activities outlined below.

       Develop required strategies and policies. Recommend draft and final versions to Council for adoption where they have a city-wide or strategic focus.

       Implement, monitor and review strategies and policies.

       Oversee the implementation of major projects provided for in the LTP or Annual Plan.

       Oversee budgetary decisions provided for in the LTP or Annual Plan.

       Oversee the development and implementation of plans and functions that promote environmental wellbeing, including Council’s plan to reach Carbon Zero.

 

       Maintain an overview of work programmes carried out by the Council’s Environment & Sustainability Directorate.

       Address matters related to ecological protection, the protection of biodiversity, and biosecurity.

       Address matters related to climate change, including raising awareness of climate-related issues, advocating for climate change issues and actions, and championing initiatives that reduce carbon emissions.

       Recommend to Council the acquisition or disposal of assets, unless the acquisition or disposal is provided for specifically in the LTP.

       Conduct any consultation processes required on issues before the Committee.

       Approval and forwarding of submissions.

       Any other matters delegated to the Committee by Council in accordance with approved policies and bylaws.

       The committee has the powers to perform the responsibilities of another committee where it is necessary to make a decision prior to the next meeting of that other committee. When exercised, the report/minutes of the meeting require a resolution noting that the committee has performed the responsibilities of another committee and the reason/s.

       If a policy or project relates primarily to the responsibilities of the Climate Change & Sustainability Committee, but aspects require additional decisions by the Communities Committee and/or Infrastructure & Regulatory Committee, then the Climate Change & Sustainability Committee has the powers to make associated decisions on behalf of those other committees. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that matters do not need to be taken to more than one of those committees for decisions.

Kerbside rubbish and recycling implementation project update

 

Purpose of Report

1.    This report provides an update on the status of the project to implement the new kerbside rubbish and recycling services, planned to commence on 1 July 2021.

Recommendation

That the Committee receives and notes the report.

 

Background

2.    Council decided on 15 September 2020 to introduce a rates funded weekly rubbish and fortnightly recycling collection services, commencing on 1 July 2021.  A project team led by Bruce Hodgins, and a project board headed by Helen Oram, were established to implement the decision.

3.    This is the second update to the Committee following the update to the meeting on 1 March 2021.

Bin Roll-Out

4.    The initial bin order was made in December 2020 with another in early February 2021 following the closing of the bin selection process. A final
top-up order was placed in early April 2021 following the completion of the Multi-Unit Development assessments.

5.    The first shipment of bins from Australia is due into Wellington on 26 April 2021, with subsequent shipments occurring over the following three weeks. The final shipment is due on 15 May 2021 in Tauranga.  These bins will then be freighted to Wellington by rail. 

6.    Arrival dates are later than what was originally planned due to shipping schedule delays affected by issues at Ports of Auckland.  Rotaform Plastics Limited (Rotaform), the company subcontracted by Waste Management Limited (WML) to supply and deliver the bins and crates, has had to re-organise shipments to avoid Ports of Auckland.

7.    Bins will be assembled and ready to commence delivery to households from early May 2021 with all deliveries planned to be completed by mid-June over a seven week period. The latter part of June will be available as back-up if there are any delays and used to respond to any issues that may occur and that need to be fixed prior to 1 July 2021.

8.    The roll-out will be carried out progressively by pick-up zone, starting with those suburbs that have their rubbish and recycling picked up on a Monday and working through to Wainuiomata for which Friday is the pick-up day.

9.    Rotaform will be using six trucks and crews to undertake the deliveries.  It expects to deliver around 2000 bins per day for the first two weeks and 3360 bins per day in subsequent weeks as the crews become familiar with the process. The bin roll-out schedule is attached as Appendix 1 to the report.

10.  Most staff employed to undertake the deliveries are being recruited locally through a temporary workforce agency and will be led by a team of Rotaform employees overseeing the roll-out.

Fleet Update

11.  WML is on track to have most of the new fleet operational on 1 July 2021, with the balance to be operational in August 2021. It has made arrangements to temporarily utilise vehicles from its existing fleet until such time as the last vehicles on order are fully operational.  The delay is due to issues with shipping and battery availability.

12.  To date two side loaders have been completed with a further seven at different stages of conversion and fit-out. Another two side-loaders arrive in the country on 2 May. The rear loaders are due to arrive 19 June 2021 and these are the vehicles that will not be operational until August 2021.

Multi- Unit Developments

13.  All Multi-Unit Developments (MUDs) have been visited and bin solutions determined based on size, lay-out and accessibility.  This information has been finalised and sent to WML in preparation for the roll-out. Letters have been, or are in the process of being sent to all MUD owners and residents advising them of the bins that will be delivered, and advising if the service will be shared or individualised.

14.  A meeting was held with Kāinga Ora managers to work through particular site issues for about 30 of its MUDs and agree on suitable solutions for residents. We will be working with Kāinga Ora during the roll-out and over the first few months to iron out teething issues.

Assisted Service Requests

15.  Assisted service request assessments commenced in early April and are expected to be completed within four weeks.  There are 622 assessments to be made for either an assisted service or to resolve a difficult access situation.  WML and Council staff are jointly conducting the assessments.

16.  Residents are contacted prior to the visits to ask if the service is still required, and if so, to let the resident know what day the visit is likely to occur. As at 13 April 2021, 194 visits had been made with 58 accepted for an assisted service.  There are a number of requests that will likely be declined as the resident(s) are considered to be able to manage their bins.

17.  Once the visits have concluded we will be writing to residents to confirm the arrangements or to advise that an assisted service is declined.

Engagement Activities

18.  Engagement on the new rubbish and recycling service continues to ramp up over May and June. Alongside their new bins, households will receive an informational booklet detailing how to use the new service when it begins in July.

19.  The bin delivery campaign, informing households of when their bins are expected to be delivered, will peak in May along with deliveries, before tailing off into June when the messaging will switch to preparations for the new service starting.

20.  The microsite toogoodtowaste.nz that launched in April will be updated with tools and content about the new service, such as a waste search tool detailing what to do with specific waste items, and an address search tool to find out your next collection day and which bins to put out.

21.  The bin delivery and service preparation campaigns will be run across print media (eg Hutt News), radio, online and out-of-home. In addition, regular face-to-face engagements will be run in high traffic areas such as local supermarkets, the riverbank market etc, to support residents to prepare for the change and answer their questions. This will be similar to the engagements run during the bin selection campaign over summer.

22.  In early May we will be going out to the public via Facebook, to seek submissions on our ‘Name The Trucks’ campaign. The campaign aims to encourage community interest and involvement in the upgraded service by asking people to put their personal ‘stamp’ on the recycling and glass fleets. The campaign will be supported by a media release and the successful names will be announced on Facebook.

23.  Letters were sent to all Coast Road Wainuiomata residents outlining the solution and measures being taken for this 80kmh road. A meeting was held with the Wainuiomata Rural Residents’ Association to listen to concerns and get feedback on the letter before it was sent.

24.  Letters were sent to all residents in private roads seeking a waiver for WML trucks to access such roads.  We require a minimum of one owner to provide the waiver for each private road in order for WML to access the road. If we do not get a single waiver then residents will need to wheel their bins to the adjoining public road.

Climate Change Impact and Considerations

25.  The matters addressed in this report have been considered in accordance with the process set out in Council’s Climate Change Considerations Guide.

Financial Considerations

26.  The total cost of implementation of the new service is forecast to be just under $1M.

Report no: CCASC2021/2/100

 

Update on Council's solid waste management and minimisation work

 

Purpose of Report

1.    To provide the Committee with an update on various solid waste management and minimisation work streams.

Recommendations

That the Committee:

(1)   notes the update on various solid waste management and minimisation work streams; and

(2)   notes the Impacts and Outcomes Framework developed by Ākina Foundation for Silverstream landfill and the wider solid waste management and resource recovery space, to help inform Council’s future work in this area.

 

Background

2.    Council undertakes a range of solid waste management and minimisation activities, and this report consolidates information on their status.

3.    However, the following solid waste and/or waste minimisation matters are addressed in separate reports, as follows:

a.       The update on the work to implement Council’s new rubbish and recycling collection services is covered in a separate report to this committee.

b.       Detailed and regular information on the ongoing development, operation and performance of the Silverstream Landfill is covered in a separate report to the Hutt Valley Services Committee.

Impact and Outcomes framework for solid waste

4.    Officers and Ākina Foundation presented the results of the work to develop an impact and outcomes framework for Silverstream Landfill and the wider solid waste management and resource recovery space to Councillors at a workshop on 7 April 2021. A full copy of the report is available in Appendix 1 to the report.

5.    Our work with the Ākina Foundation will help inform a number of workstreams, including our work to procure a new landfill operations contract (once the contract with Waste Management NZ expires),  and the development of business cases for future resource recovery infrastructure.

Business case regarding the recovery of construction and demolition waste

6.    Hutt City Council is co-operating with Porirua City Council (PCC) on its work to develop a business case regarding options for the recovery of construction and demolition (C&D) waste. PCC commissioned Morrison Low to undertake this work.

7.    The business case is on track to be developed and finalised by the end of June 2021.

Business case regarding changes at Silverstream transfer station

8.    While Council has approved funds in the draft LTP for making significant changes to the layout of the transfer station at Silverstream Landfill, in order to address many of the current health and safety risks, and improve upon the current level of service, this funding is still subject to the completion of a business case.

9.    While officers aimed to have this work complete by March 2021, it has become apparent that there are some linkages that should be considered between this work, and the work on a business case for the recovery of construction and demolition waste led by PCC.

10.  Therefore, officers are taking the time to undertake further analysis and discussion on the range of options, including the possibility of a completely new site for a resource recovery park elsewhere in the Hutt Valley, and will report back on progress.

Climate Change Impact and Considerations

11.  No detailed climate impact statement has been prepared, as this report only provides an update on various work streams. Where applicable, deliverables within the different work streams (eg business cases, procurement strategy) will cover information regarding climate impacts and/or carbon emissions. 

Financial Considerations

12.  There are no financial considerations.

Consultation

13.  There is no consultation required.

Legal Considerations

14.  There are no legal considerations.

Update on Council's climate change work

 

Purpose of Report

1.    Officers provide a regular update on climate change work, in order to implement Council’s organisational carbon target, facilitate a reduction in city-wide emissions, and address climate change impacts.

Recommendation

That the Committee notes the update on various climate change work streams.

 

Electricity and natural gas use at Council facilities

Our expected emission reduction pathway for our facilities

2.    The figure on the right shows Hutt City Council’s expected carbon emission path in relation to our emission reduction target for our facilities for 2024. Assuming all projects to remove natural gas as per draft LTP go ahead as scheduled over the next 9 years, we should achieve our 2024 target, and a 50% saving by 2030.

3.    Further reductions would depend on New Zealand further decarbonising its electricity production, from about 85% renewable currently, and realising further efficiency opportunities at our facilities.

LED street lighting

4.    As at 31 March 2021 around 5,100 streetlights (36%) have been upgraded to LED luminaires in Lower Hutt, out of a total of 14,200. This is a change of about 200 since the last report from December 2020. Progress continues to be severely hampered by supply line constraints both in China and at Ports of Auckland, and also luminaire installation rates.

5.    2,500 luminaires (18%) were ordered in October 2020, 1,000 of which arrived in March 2021.

6.    Due to the on-going supply delays and subsequent delays to installation, the Transport Team is forecasting that it will underspend its $3 million budget for the 2020/ 2021 year (85% funded by NZTA) by $400,000. The 85% subsidy reverts to 51% at the end of the 2020/2021 financial year, however they will continue to procure and install the luminaires at the normal subsidy rate of 51% in the next financial year.

7.    Delays are due to the following:

a.       Manufacturer times are now out to 2-3 months for the size of orders Council is making.

b.       Ports of Auckland are currently reporting unloading delays of at least 3 weeks.

c.       As we move into the autumn and winter months, the number of available labour days will reduce due to unsuitable weather.

d.      There are conflicts with the resource requirements of Transmission Gully project, which is currently installing significant amounts of street lights.

8.    In order to mitigate future delays, a subcontractor has been engaged to assist the main installer (Fulton Hogan).

Energy audits

9.    A number of energy audits and assessments are currently being undertaken, or have recently been completed, at various facilities.  These include the central administration building at 30 Laings Road, Koraunui - Stokes Valley Community Hub, and RICOH Fraser Park Sportsville. Where applicable, we are working on realising identified energy savings opportunities.

New Huia Pool

10.  In the draft LTP for the 2022/23 financial year, $400,000 has been set aside for installing a heat pump for water heating to significantly reduce the use of natural gas.

11.  As can be seen in our expected emission pathway above, there is no significant buffer in meeting our target for 2024.  Any acceleration in decarbonisation would be beneficial.

12.  Savings of approximately 160 tonnes of carbon dioxide, and net energy cost savings of $15,500, could be realised by making the change a year earlier than originally scheduled. Officers will present this potential budget change as part of the reports going to the Long Term Plan/Annual Plan Subcommittee in May 2021.

Council’s vehicle fleet

13.  There has been no change to Council’s vehicle fleet in the last three months. Council’s electric vehicle (EV) share remains at 19%. We are awaiting delivery of two EVs to replace conventional vehicles by July 2021.

Capital goods, purchased goods and services (procurement)

14.  A new Head of Procurement started at Council in April 2021.  Officers expect that this will assist us in improving our procurement processes and outcomes, including with regard to the achievement of broader outcomes, and embedding carbon emission reductions in future contracts.

Silverstream Landfill

15.  Officers are working with Waste Management NZ and Tonkin and Taylor to prepare for a change in operation at the landfill, whereby green waste will no longer be used for landfill cover, and instead will be composted offsite from July 2021.

City-wide carbon reductions and responding to climate change impacts

Engagement with community, and development of a city-wide roadmap

16.  A lead group of community representatives facilitated by Creative HQ, completed the work (Phase 2) to design an approach for engaging with the community on climate change, with a view to informing the development of a city-wide roadmap for reducing emissions and responding to climate change impacts. An overview of their engagement design and the timing of next steps is included in Appendix 1 to the report.

17.  The implementation of the engagement process is now underway, with two key phases over the coming months.

18.  Phase 3 has an initial focus on targeted engagement with a range of umbrella groups in the community led by lead group members and facilitated by Creative HQ. As a result of this work, we aim to develop the potential framework for a city-wide roadmap. A key deliverable for Phase 3 is also the development of a Council-wide organisational Carbon Reduction Plan (what will Council do, how will Council reduce its emissions, or help facilitate emissions in the wider community). We aim to have this completed by the end of June 2021.

19.  Phase 4 will involve engagement with the wider Lower Hutt community, approximately between July and December 2021. The focus of that phase is the development and publication of a city-wide roadmap for reducing emissions and responding to climate change impacts (what will the community collectively do, including Council; what will key stakeholders such as large businesses do to reduce their emissions).

20.  The first community engagement with youth was held on Anzac Day observed.  This hui saw a diverse group of young people from across Lower Hutt get together to hear from internationally recognised climate scientist, Dr James Renwick and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Thomas Nash.  The group talked about how to tackle climate change and set a vision going forward. 

Electric vehicle charging stations in the Eastern Bays

21.  As at 21 April 2021, Meridian Energy was close to completing the installation of EV charging stations in Days Bay and Eastbourne, with their opening imminent. The station at Days Bay is also equipped with 25kW DC charging equipment (add approximately 100km of driving range with about 40 minutes of charging).

More electric vehicle charging stations across Lower Hutt

22.  As noted in its draft LTP, Council is planning to roll-out additional 25kW DC charging stations across Lower Hutt, albeit subject to securing 50% of the necessary funding from the New Zealand Government. Officers recently submitted an application to the Government’s Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund, and we expect to hear back by July 2021.

23.  The below map shows the proposed location of charging stations. Those marked in red are proposed new locations, those marked in blue show existing DC charging stations operated by private companies.

 

24.  Wellington City Council (WCC) is also planning the roll-out of 25kW DC charging stations in its area. Council is cooperating with WCC on a procurement process to identify a suitable supplier to project manage the roll-out and operate the charging stations once completed.

25.  Note that prior to the roll-out of charging stations at the various facilities, officers will need to undertake consultation with the community and affected stakeholders at the selected locations.

Climate Change Impact and Considerations

26.  No impact statement has been prepared, as this report is of an administrative nature and provides an update on various climate change work streams.
