Waste: And What To Do With It

Are we making the most of our waste? CPRE Hampshire's Don Stewart posed this question in 2006 and concluded:

"The answer to this question must surely be "not yet, but Hampshire is ahead of the game in producing a model strategy for the rest of the country to follow". Kerbside collections in Hampshire cover both recyclables and household waste including a range of non-recyclable material and are processed in Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) and, as plant comes on stream, in Energy Recovery Facilities (ERF)."

CPRE's Position on Waste

CPRE believes waste policy should be governed by a waste hierarchy which places in order of priority:

  • waste minimisation
  • re-use and recycling
  • disposal by incineration, including material and energy recovery
  • and as a last resort - landfill.

CPRE Hampshire have organised visits during recent years to Materials and Energy Recovery Facilities at Chineham and Portsmouth.
