Waste Strategy


RESOURCES Merseyside 2011-2041 is the headline strategic route map to deliver sustainable waste management on Merseyside, transform the waste agenda and move towards greater resource efficiency.

The Strategy represents the direction taken by the Merseyside and Halton Waste Partnership (MHWP), and so is the agreed view of the following authorities:

Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council
Liverpool City Council
Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority
Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council
St Helens Metropolitan Borough Council
Metropolitan Borough of Wirral

The MHWP has expanded to include Halton Borough Council, which has a separate but aligned Strategy and both are working together in key areas such as procuring the use of residual waste recovery infrastructure.

In this section we also look at the Strategies for the UK and England and the European Union, which all have an impact on Merseyside’s Strategy.
