If you are looking to dispose of public records you have that are no longer of business use to your organisation the Records Toolkit has advice on the options available:
Did you want to:
• Find out what disposal is?
• Get approval to dispose?
• Transfer records to Archives New Zealand?
• Destroy records?
• Send records to offsite storage?
Public offices should be aware that records must not be disposed of without a Disposal Authority informing the actions undertaken. Local Authorities are advised to pay close attentions to the requirements set out in the List of Protected records.
