Waste collection service policy 2016

Summary

This policy specifies Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council’s methods for dealing with recycling and refuse collections. The policy has been written to:

  • Support the implications of local, national and European pressures for change to reduce the amount of biodegradable waste that is sent to landfill
  • Address tightening health and safety law. This means moving from manual to mechanical handling operations wherever possible
  • Ensure that the Council maintains safe, economic and efficient recycling and waste collections
