A plan to avoid landfill disasters is being seen as an important step.

Associate Environment Minister Eugenie Sage has announced a multi-agency response after tonnes of rubbish was exposed on the West Coast, when a storm eroded the old Fox Glacier landfill.

Lisa Eve is a waste management consultant at Eunomia andĀ told Kate Hawkesby it will address the lack of information in the sector and help with prioritisation.

Eve says there needs to be a national project to determine which sites are most at risk.
