The Leicestershire Waste Partnership is comprised of Leicestershire County Council, Blaby District Council, Charnwood Borough Council, Harborough District Council, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Melton Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council and Oadby and Wigston Borough Council.

The way the partnership work together to deliver waste services is set out in a joint strategy. Our existing strategy can be found here; https://www.lesswaste.org.uk/about-us/

Why a new Strategy? 

The way we view ‘waste’ has changed; it is no longer something to just get rid of, but it is potentially a valuable resource, to be retained and reused, or better still avoided altogether. Using the resources from waste can help to reduce the raw materials we need for producing new goods, which in turn has environmental, social, and financial benefits.  The proposed strategy examines what happens to recycling and waste in Leicestershire and how this can help reduce climate change and save raw materials, it sets out the shared aims of the members between 2022 – 2050.

Who is the Strategy for? 

The Strategy is for all the residents, businesses and communities of Leicestershire. It will be delivered by the Leicestershire Waste Partnership. The Partnership is seeking your views to help shape our Resources and Waste Strategy.
