Waste Services Policies

Since the formation of BCP Council in April 2019 it has been known that within waste services, there are several operating procedures that need to be aligned between the three legacy councils.

Whilst a new waste strategy for BCP Council will be produced, there is currently national uncertainty regarding waste services. In December 2018, the document ‘Our Waste, Our resources: a strategy for England’ was published followed by a consultation period in 2019. Results of the consultation were published, and the second round of consultations are due to take place in 2021.

Prior to developing our own waste strategy, there are several operational decisions that need to be made as carrying on as we are is becoming increasingly difficult. Now Christchurch is no longer being serviced by Dorset Waste Partnership, it is now possible to address some of these issues.
