The Dunedin City Council (DCC) has made a serious commitment to its responsibilities around environmental sustainability, carbon reduction and climate change this culminating in the council declaring a climate change emergency at the last Council meeting.
The DCC wants Dunedin to be carbon neutral by 2030 and we now have that critical focus on all our work programmes.
Recycling is a part of that process and will help us progress towards that goal by reducing materials going to landfill.
The DCC’s immediate challenge is to ensure that our central/inner city residents have ready-access to appropriate recycling facilities.
What we need
The DCC has already built two inner-city recycling hubs as trials, which have proven to be very successful.
Due to this success, it has been decided to build additional inner-city recycling hubs which will be similar to these existing trial inner-city recycling hubs design, for consistency and to replicate the success.
We now need a partner organisation to design, build and install the next 3 recycling hubs for the Dunedin city.
Whilst we are looking for a design, build and install partner; we are also seeking a partner organisation that will engage with the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic and incorporate their students’ designs into two of the three recycling hubs that will be provided under this contract.
This exciting collaboration with the Otago Polytechnic is an opportunity to work with a small number of final year elective students that have the potential to be the future leaders of NZ’s design and architecture. It is an opportunity to collaborate in a fantastic community and educational programme, forge relationships with the DCC, the Polytechnic and engage with some of NZ’s best talent.
