Have your say on Rutland’s Waste and Streetscene Strategy

Date Published: 09 March 2020
Waste and recycling

Rutland County Council is asking residents and businesses for their views on its Draft Waste Management and Streetscene Strategy, which has been developed to support the county in reducing its impact on the environment. 

The Draft Strategy outlines the Council’s vision for Rutland to become “a clean, green and sustainable county” and details how it proposes to achieve this by focusing on six key ambitions:

  1. To reduce the production of waste
  2. To change the way people, businesses and organisations think about waste
  3. To build communities where excess waste and litter are socially unacceptable
  4. To maximise the quality and quantity of reuse and recycling
  5. Where prevention, reuse or recycling are not possible, to maximise the recovery of energy and value from waste
  6. When waste is produced, to encourage community and commercial opportunities to use it as a resource

“We are facing a climate crisis and it is important that we all take responsibility to tackle it. This Strategy is just one step in the Council’s approach to tackling climate change and keeping our countryside clean and free of litter. It is therefore important to understand whether residents and businesses agree with the approach and to understand what support they need to help the county become clean, green and sustainable.”
Councillor Gordon Brown, Cabinet Member for Environment

The consultation runs from Monday 9 March to 3 April 2020 and can be accessed on our Public Consultations page

Hard copies of the Strategy and feedback forms are also available all Oakham, Uppingham, Ryhall and Ketton libraries and the Council's mobile library.
