LandfillThe UK is bound by the European Union Directive on the Landfill of Waste (99/31/EC) which sets mandatory targets for the reduction of biodegradable municipal waste sent to landfill. To help meet these requirements, the Government has established national targets for the recovery of municipal waste and recycling/composting of household waste. All authorities in England have been set statutory performance standards for recycling and composting household waste.
 

The national strategy, Waste Strategy for England 2007, is available below. In addition, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) website contains detailed information regarding waste and recycling, including links to the EU Directive on the Landfill of Waste.

 

At the regional level, the Staffordshire Joint Waste Management Board (JWMB) incorporates Staffordshire County Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council and the eight districts/boroughs within Staffordshire. Full details of the Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy can be viewed below. A link is also available to the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Joint Waste Core Strategy which sets out a 15 year vision of how waste will be treated and disposed of in the County.

 

Adopted in 2009, the South Staffordshire Council Waste Strategy can be viewed by selecting the link below.
