Create new recycling and reuse requirements for local authorities

Petition Details

COP26 climate goals can only be met if we tackle consumer waste and consumption. The Government should create new requirements for local authorities to follow the waste hierarchy, and reduce landfill use, to reduce carbon emissions and waste.

Additional Information

The Government must bring forward its pledge to reduce landfill use to a max 10% of municipal waste by 2035 and mandate Reuse and Recycle. They need to be more ambitious with their target and act now to mandate that councils use the waste hierarchy. The waste hierarchy promotes the following steps in this order: Prevention, Reuse, Recycling, Other Recovery, and Disposal.

Second hand, the circular economy and reuse should form a larger part of the national - and international - net zero strategy.
