The Paper Mill: Mataura's toxic waste nightmare | Frame

On the edge of the Mataura River in Southland, a disused paper mill is filled with thousands of bags of toxic waste from a nearby aluminium smelter. Locals want someone to take responsibility for it – and they want it gone before disaster strikes.

Frame is a series of short, standalone documentaries produced by Wrestler for The Spinoff.

Made with support from NZ On Air.
