Waste Commission


Newcastle City Council

Newcastle City Council set up a team of top experts to take a radical new look at how the city deals with its mountain of waste. It’s believed to be the first time that a major city has set up a Commission to take a root and branch look at all aspects of waste. The Commission examined in detail the journey of waste from the moment it is produced through to the moment it is disposed of to see how the city can dramatically reduce its waste mountain. Although the recommendations are for Newcastle, it is acknowledged that they will be applicable to other cities across the UK and even influence Government policy.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
