The purpose of this report is to seek Executive approval to adopt the Joint Municipal Wate Management Strategy (JMWMS), that sets out the strategic direction for the Project Integra Waste Management Partnership.
Project Integra (PI) is a partnership consisting of Hampshire County Council (HCC) as a waste disposal authority, 11 waste collection authorities, of which Fareham Borough Council (FBC) is one, and two unitary authorities. The two unitary authorities, Portsmouth City Council and Southampton City Council also act as Waste Disposal Authorities.
The PI Partnership refreshed its 2006 JMWMS in 2012. This new revised JMWMS sets out the strategic direction for the PI partnership and will be supported by a new operational partnership agreement and detailed action plan to take PI forward, including meeting the requirements of the Environment Bill.
This JMWMS does not commit PI partners to a particular funding arrangement, this element will be discussed and agreed through the work being undertaken on a revised partnership agreement.
Section 5, page 23 of the JMWMS document in Appendix A, includes a table which sets out the key strategic actions that all PI partners are signed up to by approval of this JMWMS. This includes a commitment to move to a twin stream collection system for dry recyclables.
However, local decision making will continue to be maintained across the partnership to ensure local factors, budgets and challenges are considered within any decision making to ensure the approach is best suited for all partners.
RESOLVED that the Executive agrees to adopt the Project Integra Joint Municipal Waste Strategy, as attached to the report as Appendix A.
