(Urgent Decision) Response to DEFRA Resources and Waste Strategy Consultation: Consistency in Collections

The Warwickshire Waste Partnership considered information about and commented upon the consultation on 16 June 2021. Subsequently, the Senior Officers’ Group has produced a response to the consultation through collaborative discussion. The policy plans potentially have favourable outcomes for waste management, the environment, and climate change, across Warwickshire.

The proposals outline plans to extend the type of waste collected at the kerbside for recycling and this could include weekly collections of food waste. There are also questions about the collection of green garden waste and residual waste. The plans will cover waste from businesses as well as households.
