Our aims for your waste

What will we do?

We will:

  • aim to keep as much waste as possible at the top ends of the hierarchy and minimise the amounts for disposal.
  • ensure that any neighbourhood recycling scheme that has a direct impact on residents is made as easy as possible to use and excludes no-one.
  • new kerbside recycling schemes will be introduced in partnership with residents to take full account of their opinions.
  • lead by example - reviewing our own waste and applying the objectives described above.
  • work with partners to ensure that all aspects of our waste activities are provided in the most appropriate way.
  • be good managers of any hazardous waste and ensure we dispose of it to the latest legislative and safety requirements.
