#1 - Leave the environment in a better condition for the next generation

Posted on 4 January 2019

We’re sure most of you have seen reports on the government’s new Resources and Waste Strategy that was published just before Christmas. We welcome this step - particularly the ambition to reduce and recycle plastic and food waste - and look forward to seeing the outcomes of a number of consultations to be undertaken in the next few months.

What we do know, is that we will need to continue to work in partnership with our District and Borough Councils, through the West Sussex Waste Partnership (WSWP), to drive forward challenging opportunities to tackle waste and improve performance.

The WSWP is currently running a number of campaigns that are designed to reduce waste. One of these initiatives is our Fight Against Food Waste! You can find out more about how you can reduce the amount of food you throw away with our #FightAgainstFoodWaste campaign

Campaigns like this will help us to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill, and align us to the Resources and Waste Strategy’s aim to halve global food waste at consumer and retail levels by 2030, and to work towards eliminating food waste to landfill by 2030.

Work is now underway to review the government’s new strategy further and understand how it will influence our services. Watch this space!
