Improving efficiency

An innovation forum has been launched by Environment Minister Elliot Morley to improve efficiency in waste management for local authorities.

West Sussex County Council will lead a group of local authorities supported by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and the Local Government Association (LGA) in identifying barriers to joint-working in waste management, and provide solutions and develop best-practice models for joint working.

LGA chairman David Sparks said: Hefty Government targets in efficiency coupled with ongoing budget constraints create an obvious tension between pressures to deliver top-quality waste management and save cash at the same time.
