West of England waste partnership

Four local authorities in the west of England are working together to create a waste and planning strategy to assist with meeting the challenges posed by landfill diversion targets.

Bristol City Council, South Gloucestershire Council, Bath and North East Somerset Council, and North Somerset Council are currently running an awareness raising campaign branded Rubbish or Resource?

It has included roadshows, public meetings and a consultation day with industry. The partnership aims to gather as much intelligence as possible before it conducts a more detailed consultation early in 2007.

South Gloucestershire council director of community services Steve Evans said: The 'Rubbish or Resource?' campaign is intended to stimulate the publics interest in the wider issues of waste management. Feedback from this initial exercise will assist us in going forward with more detailed consultations in future. This is all part of a long term strategy of engagement with stakeholders and dialogue with industry in order to meet the requirement to divert municipal solid waste from landfill and avoid LATS penalties.
