Review of Waste Management Services

To seek the views of the cabinet member in response to the councils collection and disposal contracts expiring in 2023/24 there is an opportunity to review the service and how it will operate going forward so the modelling work evaluates the current waste collection and disposable methods adopted by Herefordshire Council.  This report identifies and evaluates alternative approaches, based on the recommendations put forward by the General Scrutiny Committees on the agreed recommendations made by the Waste Task and Finish Group  to ‘shortlist’ the options to be put forward for public consultation with a view to bringing back a preferred option to cabinet in Spring 2021.

In 2018 the Government released ‘Our waste, our resources, a strategy for England’ which sets out how England will minimise waste, promote resource efficiency and move towards a circular economy. The Council seeks to align its proposals with the actions that will be taken now and the longer-term policy direction set out by Government.
