The Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, 2004-2034

The Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy has undergone its first review and been adopted by the Partnership Authorities. The documentation from the first review, along with the original strategy are available to view in the related bar at the right of this page.

In 2009/10 the cost of dealing with municipal waste in the two counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire was £52 million and the costs are increasing. Landfill tax is currently set at £56 per tonne and with a year on year increase will reach £80 per tonne from April 2014. New treatment facilities are needed to treat our waste so that we can meet the changes in legislation. We must make tough decisions as to how to tackle the problem.

Driven by Government and European legislation and a higher social awareness, we all need to rethink how we deal with our waste.

This reviewed Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy for Herefordshire and Worcestershire sets out the problems, looks at our success to date, where we are now and how we can move forward.
