We only have one planet and all waste goes somewhere. North Somerset Council’s Recycling and Waste Strategy is a mission to achieve ‘zero waste’ and is an important part of protecting our planet.
As a council North Somerset have declared a climate emergency, and as the waste we produce has associated carbon emissions this strategy will form part of the climate emergency work. We must think of waste as being a resource from which as much value as possible should be recovered. This strategy is focused on working with residents, businesses, community groups and town and parish councils to contribute towards North Somerset’s net zero carbon aims, as well as changing the way we operate our waste services to achieve our targets.
