Our domestic waste and recycling policy

Our domestic waste and recycling policy further outlines our collection services

We are committed to tackling climate change and the causes of it. Our Climate Change Strategy states that:

“The level of waste generated in the Borough will be decreased and the rate of recycling increased. Items we dispose of will no longer be considered as waste but used as a resource.”

As the highest tier of the waste management hierarchy, preventing waste has significant environmental benefits as well as saving the costs of managing waste. In January 2013 Cabinet approved this new policy to support achieving these aims. The policy is written in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Highways Act 1980.
