Leicestershire’s Resources and Waste Strategy 2022-2050
How we view ‘waste’ has changed; it is no longer only something to get rid of, but is considered a valuable resource, to be retained and reused, or avoided at all where possible. Using waste as a resource can help to reduce the raw materials needed for producing new goods, which has environmental, social and financial benefits.
The Leicestershire Resources and Waste Strategy reflects this global current thinking and describes the recycling and waste management services which will be delivered by the Leicestershire Waste Partnership from 2022 up to 2050. The Partnership is comprised of the seven borough and district councils of Leicestershire, and the County Council. The partner authorities have come together to deliver a joint strategy with the following vision.
To work towards a circular economy and contribute to achieving net zero carbon by 2050 in Leicestershire. This means fully embracing the waste hierarchy by preventing waste and keeping resources in circulation for as long as possible, through reuse, repair and recycling, to realise their maximum value whilst minimising environmental impacts.
The strategy examines what happens to your recycling and waste and how this can help reduce climate change and save raw materials. The Strategy contains 12 pledges that help meet its vison and objectives and is accompanied by the following supporting documents: Environmental Report, Options Appraisal and Consultation Report
