Warwickshire launch waste strategy

Warwickshire launched its waste strategy today - setting out detailed plans for dealing with its waste in the future.

The result of months of research and consultation, it has set itself an ambitious target of recycling 40-45% of its waste and has placed strong emphasis on reducing the amount of waste produced, and increasing reuse, recycling, and composting.

One proposal is for remaining waste to be treated in an incinerator or energy-from-waste (EfW) plant, to produce heat and electricity.

Warwickshire Waste Partnership chairman, Councillor Ken Browne said: “Every person living in the county can rest assured that this is a comprehensive 15-year plan, to be reviewed every five years, so when we start to tackle the difficult decisions, such as where an incinerator will be built, we will carry out full and detailed public consultations.”
