Leicestershire Municipal Waste Management Strategy
Leicestershire County Council in partnership with the District Councils, have developed a strategy to manage Leicestershire's waste for the next 20 years. The Strategy will address the challenges posed by recent recycling and composting targets, as well as address the long term requirements to divert larger quantities of waste away from landfill.

Before formulating the Strategy, the Partnership sought the views of individuals and interest groups across Leicestershire using a consultation document and questionnaire.
Key findings of the questionnaire include :
- 84% overall satisfaction with the refuse collection system
- 54% overall satisfaction with current recycling facilities although this varied between districts and reflected the current level of provision
- 61% satisfaction with the recycling and household waste sites
- High demand (78%) for kerbside recycling collection services but respondents felt that the key is to make the system as simple to use as possible
- 68% of respondents were in favour of working to exceed current statutory recycling standards
- 74% of respondents felt that incineration to generate electricity was the best option to deal with residual waste (i.e. waste that remains after recycling and composting)
