Waste Management Strategy Consultation

Closed 29 Oct 2021

Opened 23 Jul 2021


The Council is passionate about creating a cleaner and greener borough. To help us achieve this, we have drafted a new Waste Management Strategy, aligned with our Climate Emergency Action Plan. We are committed to reducing waste, improving air quality and protecting the environment for future generations.

Within the draft strategy, we want to offer a roadmap setting out how residents, businesses, visitors, housing providers and Council services can work together to deliver on the basic principle of the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle).

The draft strategy presents a set of six priorities for the years to come. These priorities are fully explained within the strategy document so please ensure you read this before completing the survey.

Please share your comments and ideas to help shape the final strategy, working together to create a cleaner and greener Lewisham.
