WRAP: Systematic survey of local authority plans for waste and recycling services in England: presents the findings of a 2014 survey of 119 LA waste managers in England on the changes planned for recycling and waste management services and the drivers for these changes. The survey also aimed to identify the barriers local authorities were facing locally in increasing recycling. 59% of respondents reported that some changes to the services in their authority were planned over the next five years. Common themes showed a consideration of further reductions in residual waste capacity either by lower frequency services or reduced container capacity and whether to charge for garden waste services. The most frequently mentioned driver identified through the survey was the need to make financial savings and address budget pressures. (23 March 2016)
