The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) published its Resources and Waste Strategy for England on 18 December 2018. The Strategy sets out how the country will preserve material resources by minimising waste, promoting resource efficiency and moving towards a circular economy.
Several aspects of the Government’s waste strategy concern functions for which local authorities are responsible.
The Committee has undertaken a short inquiry, and invites written submissions on the basis of the following Terms of Reference:
Evidence given by Professor Nicky Gregson, University of Durham, Dr Sherilyn MacGregor, Sustainable Consumption Institute, University of Manchester, and Dr Marcus Gover, Chief Executive, Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP); Jacob Hayler, Executive Director, Environmental Services Association, Martin Curtois, External Affairs Director, Veolia, and Jeremy Jacobs, Technical Director, Renewable Energy Association (at 5.00pm).
