Pollution Prevention and Compliance
Bay of Plenty Regional Council has a responsibility under the Resource Management Act to control the discharge (or disposal) of solids, liquids or gases to the environment. This is done through policies and rules in regional plans, and by considering applications for resource consent to dispose of waste.
POLLUTION HOTLINE 0800 884 883
For pollution reporting, call our 24-7 Pollution Hotline on 0800 884 883.
It is helpful to have a clear description of the location, and the event or type of contamination taking place. If possible any descriptions such as vehicles, company logos or names can help us follow up reports more efficiently. It is always best to contact us when a possible pollution event is happening.
