People are encouraged to give their views on what happens to waste and recycling in the county.
Leicestershire Waste Partnership is asking residents to help shape its blueprint for future services, known as the Leicestershire Resources and Waste Strategy 2022-2050. More »
A range of pledges, such as delivering reuse services and encouraging residents to prevent unnecessary waste, are set out in the strategy as is, subject to Government policy and funding, implementing household food waste collections.
The consultation also seeks views on the future frequency of household waste collections.
The partnership is made up of Leicestershire County Council, Blaby District Council, Charnwood Borough Council, Harborough District Council, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Melton Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council and Oadby and Wigston Borough Council.
Councillor Joe Orson, leader of Melton Borough Council and spokesperson for Leicestershire Waste Partnership, said:
"By sharing your views on this strategy, you will help Leicestershire use its resources more efficiently and become a net zero carbon county by 2050.
"This is an important consultation which asks residents, businesses and communities to share their views on how we can deliver future waste services, and create a cleaner, greener Leicestershire."
Leicestershire County Councillor Blake Pain, cabinet member for the environment and the green agenda, said:
"There is an urgent need for us to work towards a circular economy, where we reduce the impacts of climate change and take steps to live more sustainably.
"Over 40 per cent of all household waste in Leicestershire is currently recycled. These figures include reuse, recycling and composting for both kerbside collections and waste deposited at our recycling and household waste sites."
The consultation is open until 25th April and can be found at: https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/have-your-say/current-engagement/leicestershires-resources-and-waste-strategy-2022-2050
