Don’t Waste Your Say

The Don’t Waste Your Say public consultation has now ended. Thank you for your interest.

Welcome to the Don’t Waste Your Say Public Consultation

Last year, we gathered the views of over 3,000 people living in Merseyside on how Merseyside will improve municipal waste management over the next thirty years and address some of the major resource challenges. Key findings from the research can be found in the consultation feedback newsletter that you can download in the section below.

The information collected from the consultation was fed into the development of a draft Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy for Merseyside (JMWMS) that will provide a way forward from 2011 for the next 30 years.

The key points of the new Strategy can be found by logging onto

Please take time to read the Strategy Summary (PDF) and leave your comments on the feedback form (PDF). You can give as little or as much feedback as you like, but we are very interested in finding out what you think of the new Strategy.

We realise that there are additional consultations currently running or will finish close to the date of our consultation – the main one of these being the consultation on Merseyside Waste Development Planning Document (or Waste DPD) being produced by Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service (MEAS). This deals with the potential locations of new waste facilities and is not related to this consultation.

A full copy of the draft Strategy, the Environmental Report and other supporting documents can be found on the links below.

If you have any further questions please contact Stuart Donaldson, Waste Strategy Manager Tel: 0151 255 2570 or email:
