Decision details

Kent Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy - Refresh - 12/01978

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Waste & Emissions Trading Act 2003 requires that councils in two tier areas put in place a Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy (JMWMS).  This seeks to support partnership approaches to deliver better outcomes for taxpayers between Waste Disposal Authorities (such as Kent County Council) and Waste Collection Authorities (district and borough councils).  The first Kent JMWMS was adopted by all 13 councils in 2007.  This report outlines the process and activities undertaken to refresh the policies in the Kent JMWMS so they are up-to-date and relevant for the period 2012 to 2020.  The very good relationships fostered between the 13 councils through the auspices of the Kent Waste Partnership (KWP) are such that refreshing and retaining the KJMWMS is desirable for our own business purposes irrespective of the legal requirement.



The Cabinet Member is asked to consider the refreshed KJMWMS objectives and policies 2012/13 to 2020/21 contained in Annex 1 and support these as the adopted policies for this Council
