Local authorities

Supporting local authorities to improve recycling quality and quantity

We work closely with local authorities, providing you with free-to-use resources and support, to help make your waste and recycling service the best it can be.

We understand that the design and delivery of waste and recycling services is a tricky area to navigate, particularly with budget pressures, regulatory uncertainty, Covid-19 and climate change pressures.
