DAERA seeks views on development of new Northern Ireland Waste Management Strategy

Following the last Waste Strategy Workshop held at CAFRE’s Greenmount Campus in September, DAERA says it is hosting a further workshop to help inform the development of a new Waste Management Strategy.

DAERA says officials are keen to explore with businesses, councils and anyone with an interest in waste management, the actions society might collectively need to take to meet new recycling and landfill reduction targets, reduce litter and tackle plastic pollution.

DAERA said: “How we reduce, recycle and otherwise deal with waste is such an important topic and it is therefore also important that the work we have underway on the content of a new waste management strategy is informed by as many different perspectives as possible.”

The workshop will take place on 13th December 2022 at 9.30 am at CAFRE’s Greenmount Campus. Due to capacity constraints, attendees are limited to 2 per organisation

A webcast providing feedback on the discussions from the previous Workshop in September is available on the DAERA Website.

You can register your interest in the event by sending an e-mail to: wslpr@daera-ni.gov.uk with your name, organisation and contact details.

Northern Ireland Waste Management Strategy

Earlier this year, Northern Ireland’s Environment Minister, Edwin Poots MLA, published the Closure report for the current Northern Ireland Waste Management Strategy.

The draft Environment Strategy for Northern Ireland included a commitment to publish a new Waste Management Strategy by 2023.

The Closure Report concluded that over the lifetime of the Strategy there have been significant improvements in key headline waste indicators, including diversion from landfill and recycling.
