CIWM / Local Partnerships: Delivering waste efficiencies in the North West: this is the fifth regional review undertaken by Local Partnerships focusing on efficiencies achieved in waste management. The examples provided will enable other waste collection authorities to benefit from the experiences, particularly in terms of examining councils’ own services and seeing if the experiences here could be applied to their authority and support them in making their own savings. They do not just focus on one specific area or aspect of waste management, but explore a range of options to achieve efficiencies. (8 April 2016)
