Strategic Options for Processing of Separate Food Waste and Other Waste Disposal Services

Under the new Environment Act 2021 waste collection authorities (WCAs) will be required to collect food waste separately. Under earlier legislation, it falls to the County Council as Waste Disposal Authority (WDA) to arrange for the disposal of the “controlled waste” collected in its area by the waste collection authorities.


Cabinet will be asked to consider a preferred option to meet this requirement based on a detailed business case and to consider associated contractual arrangements and other opportunities to improve efficient use of assets.
