Taylor, who has been on the executive since 2002 and is currently one of the body’s two vice-chairs, takes over from Andrew Bird when he steps down after four years in January 2018.

She said it was a privilege to become chair: “I am looking forward to working with the wider industry at this critical time and representing our local authority members.

”With so much change and uncertainty, it is crucial that Larac works hard on behalf of its members and I intend to give them the best representation possible.”

An early task for Taylor will be to oversee the development of a new four-year business plan for the organisation, with the existing one due to finish at the end of 2018.

Bird said he had “thoroughly enjoyed” his four years as chair.

“As an organisation, we have grown over the past four years, building on the work of previous chairs before me. It has been a tough few years for our members and that shows no sign of easing in the short term.

“Carole knows the industry and Larac extremely well and I know it will continue to grow under her leadership,” he added.

Bird will remain a member of the executive because he is half-way through a two-year term as a nationally elected representative.

Taylor is also a judge for MRW’s National Recycling Awards.
