Waste and Recycling in Leicestershire Consultation

Live Purple Bin Lorry

The Leicestershire Waste Partnership is asking residents for their thoughts on what happens to their waste and recycling here in the district and across the county.

Consultation on the newly proposed Leicestershire Resources and Waste Strategy 2022-2050 hopes to assess how Councils can deliver waste services and take steps to live more sustainably. This includes encouraging waste prevention, reviewing how they deliver re-use services and proposed separate food waste collections.

Councils alongside Blaby District in the partnership include Leicestershire County, Charnwood Borough, Harborough District, Hinckley and Bosworth, Melton Borough, North West Leicestershire District and Oadby and Wigston Borough.

Over 40 percent of all household waste in Leicestershire is currently recycled and a focus of the consultation is to expand on the work already done to assist climate change reduction in the county.

Councillor Joe Orson, spokesperson for Leicestershire Waste Partnership and leader of Melton Borough Council, said: “By sharing your views on this strategy, you will help Leicestershire use its resources more efficiently and become a net zero carbon county by 2050.

“This is an important consultation which asks residents, businesses and communities to share their views on how we can deliver future waste services, and create a cleaner, greener Leicestershire.”

The consultation is open until 25 April. Find out further information and have your say on the Leicestershire County Council website.
