On Friday 18th January we will be hosting a webinar with WYG on the National Resources and Waste Strategy and the impact on Local Authority Services. Read more about the Strategy here.
Stuart Henshaw from Integrated Skills giving an overview of software tools available for the planning and implementation of changes to waste services in response to the Strategy.
Victoria Hutchin from WYG, one of the UK’s leading practitioners in waste strategy development for the municipal sector will be giving an analysis of the impact on Local Authorities.
Victoria will highlight…
- Why this is the most comprehensive waste legislation since 2000 and is ‘a framework for reinvigorating the waste/ resources sector’
- Why this is good news for local authority waste and recycling Officers
- How the Strategy challenges the status quo and creates the shift we need; to create an informed, accountable and sustainable resources-focused economy
- How the Strategy flags the need for proper resourcing; Government has acknowledged that appropriate resources at local authorities will be needed to meet the new net costs arising from the policies; both in terms of initial set-up investment and ongoing costs
- How material consistency and quality services will be required to deliver this change along with suitable performance indicators. Material consistency, separate food waste collections, kerbside battery collections and the role of Deposit Return Schemes will all be part of the forthcoming challenge for local authorities
