Review of the Waste and Resource Strategy for Devon
Following the consultation exercise carried out in 2012, the review document has been approved by the Devon Authorities Waste Reduction and Recycling Committee and is available to view at Waste Management Strategy Review. Work is ongoing in a number of areas and this work will supplement the reviews as it is completed. The work includes waste prevention and reuse strategy.
The Review looks at the Waste Management Strategy for Devon which was published in March 2005. With changes to legislation, targets, waste arisings and new methods of collection and disposal of household waste, the review establishes where we are and how to secure sustainable waste management into the future.
