Aim 2: Increasing the efficiencies and cost effectiveness of recycling

Why is this important?
Because many council and alpine resorts in the north east are small and separated by distance: the cost of transport, processing of waste and recycling of materials can be difficult and expensive.  By improving the way waste and recycling is managed: through contracts, working in partnerships with other councils and alpine resorts and grouping of collection services better prices and fuel efficiencies can be achieved.

What will change and how it will affect me?
Because your council or alpine resort is likely to be working in partnership with others in the region, it means that they can collect more materials for recycling. It also means that when emergencies occur (such as fire and floods) councils and alpine resorts have the ability to access the infrastructure to deal with these events; which often create large volumes of waste.
