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 current public consultation on the Joint Strategy, a drop-in event we are running to support that consultation, and (at the bottom of the page) links to download the draft Joint Strategy and its supporting documents.
For more information on our current strategy and how we manage recycling and waste, please visit this page.
We want to hear your views on our draft Joint Strategy, so we are running a public consultation until 5pm on Monday 20th September 2021. You can participate in this consultation through our online survey.
If you are unable to complete the online survey, you can request a paper copy to be sent to you by emailing email@example.com or calling 020 8724 5803.
