Lewisham Council is keen to make the borough cleaner and greener. It has drafted a new waste management plan and is now consulting residents to help shape its final strategy.
The consultation asks a whole host of questions about the best way to reduce waste – smaller bins, educational campaigns, penalty notices etc.
It wants your thoughts on how to increase recycling, reduce packaging, community engagement, additional roadside collections of metals, batteries and textiles, composting, and improving food waste collections at flats.
The council says it is “committed to reducing waste, improving air quality and protecting the environment for future generations.
“Within the draft strategy, we want to offer a roadmap setting out how residents, businesses, visitors, housing providers and Council services can work together to deliver on the basic principle of the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle).
“The draft strategy presents a set of six priorities for the years to come. These priorities are fully explained within the strategy document, with a basic introduction within the survey.”
It asks residents “to share their comments and ideas to help shape the final strategy, working together to create a cleaner and greener Lewisham.”
