  Abstract To date, the management of waste-streams generated by natural and anthropogenic disasters in New Zealand has been ad hoc, with planning largely taking place post rather than pre event. A valid reason for this is that the severity and consequences of such events varies widely, dictating the type and quantity of waste produced. To help mitigate problems caused by unplanned waste, a web GIS tool is being developed for use in a pre-event planning exercise and for developing quick early estimates of waste during an event. The tool models the amount of waste generated by different types of natural disasters, quantifying the amount of waste for different waste-streams. The user can then find the nearest suitable waste disposal location, accounting for barriers. This tool could be of great value for local government. It is flexible, so that can quickly and simply be extended to other regions and the intention is for regional councils to host the tool within their own GIS environment.
