Climate change strategy - further information


We will ensure we waste less as a borough and stop dependence on single use plastic.

We will:

  • Minimise the use of single use plastic across the council
  • Promote waste and plastic reduction through the council’s event programme 
  • Encourage food businesses to move to plastic free
  • Promote the delivery of a circular economy through encouraging upcycling, re-sale, reuse and recycling of goods rather than landfill
  • Implement changes to waste and recycling collections to meet the 2021 Environment Bill requirements, for example, weekly food waste collections
