Spicer Landfill - compliance responsibilities
Spicer Landfill is jointly owned by Porirua City Council (78.5%) and Wellington City Council (21.5%) with the oversight and management being provided by PCC. Envirowaste Limited is contracted by PCC and is responsible for the daily operations and management of the site.
