DEFRA and WRAP Webinar for LAs on the consultation: Consistency in Household and Business Recycling in England - Food Waste, Garden Waste and Implementation Timelines

DEFRA and WRAP are working together to run a series of free collaborative webinars for local authorities on the current consultation Consistency in Household and Business Recycling in England.

These webinars offer a unique opportunity to help officers fully understand the proposals and will address the key questions, provide clarification on the main proposals and support local authorities in submitting their responses.

Each webinar will focus on certain proposals for which DEFRA is seeking views.

Wednesday 16 June (2pm - 4.30pm)

Food waste: Separate collections from all households at least weekly and sent for recycling or composting, and implementation timelines.

Garden waste: Separate collections of garden waste, alternative options to increase recycling of garden waste, costs and carbon benefits of free garden waste service, reasonable charges, and implementation timelines.

The webinars will focus on those areas of greater interest for local authorities within each topic area. In order to maximise the value of the events to officers and provide useful focus delegates are invited to submit questions in advance of the sessions. We will answer as many pre-submitted questions as we can during Q&A.

If you would like to submit a question in advance, please email by 12noon on Wednesday 9 June indicating which webinar session your question relates to. There will also be an opportunity to ask additional questions during the webinars.
