When it comes to waste management, many local authorities are looking for cleaner and more efficient ways to collect waste. Efficiency covers many aspects, including fuel consumption and emissions as well as how many bins can be emptied on one route. When it comes to fuel and emissions efficiency many local authorities have now made the switch to electric vehicles (EVs)

Old electronics present a huge problem to those in charge of managing waste. It is important that this waste is disposed of effectively and as sustainably as possible. However this can only be done if those disposing of the waste are willing and able to do so

Greater Manchester has improved its recycling rates to over 50 per cent by making improvements at household waste recycling centres

What is zero waste to landfill and how can it be achieved?

Bin collection is, by nature, quite a dirty task. However, councils around the country have been working on making collections cleaner by using electric vehicles

All local authorities are struggling with rising costs at the moment and savings need to be found. On top of this, many people still do not recycle as much as they could. With recent bad weather also affecting bin collections, is there a way to make bin collections more efficient?

Dyl Kurpil, managing director, District Enforcement explains how the latest technology provides both a proven deterrent to fly-tipping and improved evidence to ensure offenders are identified and fined
