Waste strategy and service standards

Strategy and policy information

three bins

Our commitment

The council is committed to reducing the amount of waste which is sent to landfill. We aim to encourage residents to:

  • Reduce the amount of waste they produce 
  • Reuse products
  • Recycle waste where possible

All councils have targets to achieve and thanks to the continued efforts of residents the recycling and composting rate in this borough is over 55%.

In Leicestershire, the county, district and borough councils work together as the Leicestershire Waste Partnership (LWP). One of the biggest priorities is to reduce the amount of rubbish we send to landfill. 

Wheeled bins for refuse are provided according to our wheeled bin and container policy.

Thinking of building a new property? Then please read through our wheeled bin guidance notes for developers. This includes important information on space and access requirements.
