You do not need a resource consent to dispose of dead stock, domestic and other farm rubbish into pits
However, you must be able to meet these requirements:
- Only material from your own farm is disposed of in the pit.
- The pit is covered with a lid.
- A layer of soil or sawdust is added each time any offal or carcass is put in the pit.
- There is no smell outside of your property boundary.
If you cannot meet any of these requirements, you will need to apply for resource consent (an air discharge permit).
