Waste Management Plan

This section provides an overview of the policy framework and key statutory requirements that impact on the development of future waste management provisions.

It is not intended to provide a comprehensive review of all European, UK and Northern Ireland waste management legislation, but will focus on the most significant elements that are likely to affect strategic planning in the North West Region Waste Management Area.

It is vital that legislative and policy issues are considered carefully when local authorities are evaluating strategic waste management options as the fulfilment of statutory and non-statutory requirements will represent an important consideration in the decision making process. Decisions concerning statutory and non-statutory requirements will impact on the scope, duration, flexibility and costs of future contracts for waste management.
