Boroughs set waste goals

London Councils has revealed plans to improve the way that the capital manages its waste.

The organisation's transport and environment committee called for greater consideration to be given to deploying energy from waste facilities.

Boroughs demanded consistency with EU and national waste policies and strategies and a change in the interpretation of regional self-sufficiency to ensure that waste is managed at the nearest suitable location. The proposals also set a goal for London to stop landfilling any of its waste by 2028.

Committee chairman Daniel Moylan said: "Working in partnership with the boroughs, mayor Boris Johnson can make the capital a shining example for other major global cities to follow."
