In a video interview, Dr Jane Beasley of Beasley Associates and Paul Vanston of the Kent Resource Partnership discuss the barriers to waste partnerships in the UK.

Speaking on the Kent resource Partnership, Paul Vanston says: “We don’t have all the answers to all the questions, but one thing is clear – we’ve gone into this partnership because we want to, as a set of councils. We want to continue that partnership, but it has to be based on the money.”
