Minister reappoints Waste Advisory Board members

Environment Minister Amy Adams has reappointed two members to the Waste Advisory Board.

Sheryl Stivens and Gareth James have been reappointed to the Board for a term of three years.

“Ms Stivens and Mr James have a high level of expertise and credibility on waste issues. Reappointing them to the Board will provide stability and consistency of advice in a period when significant waste issues are being discussed, such as the possibility of mandatory product stewardship,” Ms Adams says.

Ms Stivens is a self-employed contractor involved in the development of industry training and assessment for the resource recovery industry.

She has previously been on the Executive Board of Recycling Operators of New Zealand and was the General Manager of the WasteBusters Trust Canterbury.

Ms Stivens was a founding member of the Community Recycling Network and has been on the Waste Advisory Board since it was established in 2008.

Mr James is the General Manager of Transpacific Waste Management and is an engineer with more than 30 years’ experience in the waste industry.

He has an in-depth understanding of the mechanics of the waste disposal levy, 14 years’ experience within local government and has been a Board member since 2011.

The Board provides advice to the Environment Minister on issues relating to waste management and waste minimisation.

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.

Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties. Despite Finlayson’s misleading signals on RNZ that these are only stopgaps until next year’s full review of our security laws, the measures in question will not, in fact, expire until 2018.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
