Waste and Resources


Key areas of work

LEDNet’s waste and resources cluster looks to tackle London’s biggest waste-related challenges to help reduce consumption-based emissions in London and achieve a circular economy and London’s net zero targets. LEDNet’s waste and resources cluster’s work programme focuses on three main strands of work: influencing waste policy; influencing waste services; and sharing best practice. The cluster are currently working on responding to the Government’s Resource and Waste Strategy (RWS) consultations on the Deposit Return Scheme (DRS), Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and consistent collections of business and household recycling. 

Cluster lead and membership

The waste and resources cluster is led by a LEDNet Director from Lambeth. Other London boroughs represented on the cluster are Enfield, Camden, Hounslow, Newham, Redbridge and Havering. 

External organisations on the cluster include London Councils, East London Waste Authority (ELWA), National Association of Waste Disposal Officers (NAWDO) and the Association of London Cleansing Officers (ALCO).
