East London Waste Authority is working in partnership with the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge (collectively known as the Partner Authorities) on a new Joint Strategy for managing our future resources and waste. The Joint Strategy is being developed to inform services starting from December 2027 when our current contract for managing waste treatment and disposal comes to an end.
The Joint Strategy sets out the long-term aims, objectives and priorities of the Partner Authorities for future resources and waste management. We want to reduce waste generation, increase reuse and repair, improve local recycling and composting rates, and deliver new infrastructure solutions that will be cost-effective and support continuous improvement. The Partner Authorities also want to reduce the environmental impacts of waste, including the emission of greenhouse gases, and provide opportunities for local community benefits and regeneration.
In the sections below you can find information on the public consultation that was carried out on the Joint Strategy during 2021, and (at the bottom of the page) links to download the draft Joint Strategy and its supporting documents.

A public consultation on the Joint Strategy was carried out for eight weeks between 26 July and 20 September 2021.
The feedback from this consultation is being compiled and analysed to help with preparing a final version of the Joint Strategy, which will be published in January 2022.
