These bye-laws govern a range of issues, including obliging consumers to participate in an authorized waste collection service or provide documentary proof on what alternative means they use to dispose of their waste and encouraging greater segregation of waste to reduce volumes of residual waste collected.
This means that from now on, every household must be able to prove that they have a contract in place with an authorized waste collector or that they regularly use a civic amenity site or recycling centre. By correctly managing your waste you will:
- Make an important contribution to meeting the climate challenge
- Improve the quantity and quality of recyclable* material collected
- Reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and incineration
- Help conserve planet Earth’s finite resources
The Bye-Laws enter into force on 1st March 2020, and can be downloaded below:
