5 The Call to Action Waste growing annually EU Landfill Directive - Targets & fines UK government targets – Waste Strategy 2000, Best Value Cabinet Office Strategy Unit report Dec 2002 Sustainable development Regional Waste Management Strategy

6 EU Landfill Directive (Council Directive 1999/31/EC)

7 EU Landfill Directive Article 1 “…….to provide for measures, procedures and guidance to prevent or reduce as far as possible negative effects on the environment, in particular the pollution of surface water, groundwater, soil and air, and on the global environment, including the greenhouse effect, as well as any resulting risk to human health, from landfilling of waste, during the whole life cycle of the landfill.”

8 EU Landfill Directive Article 4 Each landfill site is to be classified into one of the following 3 types: InertInert Non-hazardousNon-hazardous HazardousHazardous

19 Regional Waste Mgmt Strategy

20 A region in which natural resources are used and managed efficiently so that by 2025 the amount of waste produced will be minimised, the overwhelming majority of materials will be re-used, recycled, or have value recovered from them, and the environment will be protected and enhanced for future generations. Our Vision

21 Definitions Recycling:Recycling: Involves the reprocessing of wastes, either into the same product or a different one. ( National Waste Strategy, Glossary of Terms )Involves the reprocessing of wastes, either into the same product or a different one. ( National Waste Strategy, Glossary of Terms )

22 Definitions Recovery:Recovery: Encompasses recycling and composting, and also other methods of recovering value from waste including energy through incineration, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis and gasification, and the spreading of biodegradable waste(including compost and digestate) on agricultural land. ( SEERA RWMS, Glossary of Terms )Encompasses recycling and composting, and also other methods of recovering value from waste including energy through incineration, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis and gasification, and the spreading of biodegradable waste(including compost and digestate) on agricultural land. ( SEERA RWMS, Glossary of Terms )

23 Resource management ethos Emphasis on minimisation Targets for recycling and recovery Alternative options - recovery targets Integrated approach to management Rapid increase in recovery capacity Pragmatic self sufficiency & press London to reduce exports Land use & wider management Outline of Consultation Draft

24 Landfill Directive and National Waste Strategy 2000 recovery targets are met and exceeded through recycling, composting and digestion, and energy recovery, with minimum disposal to landfill Reflects views expressed in consultation with stakeholders Preferred Option

25 Implications of Preferred Option  Exceeding statutory targets (minimising landfill) increases the challenge  Need for rapid increase in recovery capacity & management, and many new developments & sites  Recycling and composting takes time to develop - could place reliance on energy from waste in short term Preferred Option

26 Implications for recovery targets (current recovery rate for all waste = c.55%) Preferred Option MSW 40 % 57 % 79 % 83 % 84 % C&I 59 % 68 % 75 % 81 % 84 % C&D 74 % 83 % 86 % 88 % 90 % All 66 % 73 % 81 % 84 % 86 %

27 Cumulative New facilities (number depends on size of individual facilities) Infrastructure implications (Illustrative) Energy Recycling/MR F Composting

28  Same policy approach but targets are met and not exceeded:  MSW – LFD recovery targets applied to all MSW but final target applied at 2020 (limited effect)  C&I – WS2000 recovery target applied at 2005 only  C&D - WS2000 recovery target applied at 2005 only Alternative Option

29 Implications for recovery targets (% all waste) Current rate for all waste = c.55% Alternative Option Year YearOption Preferred Alternative

30  Major and urgent challenge  Need to tackle growth in waste  Need for rapid build up of capacity  Need for a large number of new recovery facilities and sites  Need for recovery to be incentivised  Need for recycling to be made easier than disposal  We all must play our part Conclusion

31  Consultation, including workshops, to 23 June 2003  Policies will form amendment to RPG9 and part of Regional Spatial Strategy  Submission to GOSE end 2003  Further consultation & Public Examination before approval by SoS Timetable
