Tamaki WRAP (Waste Reduction Action Group)

Social Service


We are a community group based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aoteroa. We help our community to reduce waste by using grassroots education and support as well as collaborating with NGOs, social enterprise, industry and local council.

Tāmaki WRAP is a community group made up of predominantly local people from the Tāmaki region. Our backgrounds, skills and interests are diverse but our commitment to ensuring a sustainable and healthy community unites us all.



Mission statement:

‘Connecting and supporting communities to reduce waste’



“At WRAP our values guide our beliefs and commitment to our work”

The People – He Tangata
Whether born and bred, newcomers or returning to the Tamaki community we believe the people can inspire and empower change through their locality, experience and connection to the community and whenua.

The Land – Whenua
We belong to the land, the land doesn’t belong to us. We value our roles as kaitiaki of the whenua that guide and promote sustainable practices in waste reduction.

Openness – Mākohakoha
Waste is a vehicle for change that can be sought from different inspirations, aspirations and experiences. Being open and aware of all ensures an equal and supportive environment.

Sharing Knowledge & Skills – Ako
We acknowledge that education is vital for change and personal development. We also acknowledge and support different approaches to education that are respectful and promote participation.

Employment - Mahi
Employment opportunities in the field of waste whether local or outside the community has positive flow on effects.

  • strengthening our local economy
  • caring for our environment
  • role modelling positive behaviour
  • shedding some light on local skills and talent
  • personal development of an individual and community
