Burning coated wire

Burning coated wire

Updated 3 July 2015 12:49pm

Subclause 9 (see link below) of the regulations specifies:

9 Burning of coated wire


This standard means that the burning of coated wire in the open air is banned.

Councils would still be able to consider whether to grant consents for discharges to air from coated wire burnt in appropriately designed equipment with appropriate emission controls (i.e. within a controlled environment rather than an open fire). The standard states that any resource consent application for this activity is a discretionary activity.
