Achieving Zero Waste in the Liverpool City Region

A resource has launched this week that will provide residents across the Liverpool City Region with help, advice and opportunities to start their zero waste journey in their homes and communities.

Zero Waste LCR is a new brand featuring a website and supporting social media channels. We are working to achieve zero waste by 2040 and are supporting the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s commitment to net zero carbon by 2040.

Zero Waste LCR recognises the important part waste and resources plays in combating the effects of climate change and the adoption of a zero waste circular economy.

Speaking about the launch, Councillor Tony Concepcion, Chairperson of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority said: “We want to make the City Region a place where all materials are viewed and valued as usable resources and nothing goes to waste – we need to waste less, and reuse, repair, share and recycle more.

These new resources are a great starting point in bringing together ideas, information and opportunities so that residents across the Liverpool City Region can start their own zero waste journey.”

Carl Beer, Chief Executive of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority said: “I would encourage everyone to follow our social media and have a look at the new website.  In the coming weeks and months, we’re going to be launching a range of activities so that residents can get more involved – and we can get their views and ideas going forward.”
