About Us

This website is run by the Leicestershire Waste Partnership (the Partnership), which is composed of the seven borough and district councils of Leicestershire, and the County Council (Leicester City Council is an associate member as it has made its own arrangements for future waste management). The partner authorities have come together to deliver a joint strategy with the following vision.

“Leicestershire is pursuing a clear vision for sustainable waste management and resource use. Waste should first be prevented from arising, be reused, recycled or composted. Any residual waste that has not been reused, recycled or composted should be treated before disposal so that further value can be recovered and so that the impact of final disposal is minimised. Through the collaborative efforts of the Partnership, a majority of Leicestershire’s waste will be recycled by 2017, growth in waste production will be in decline and local communities will be taking responsibility for the waste they produce.”
