Our Waste team help clients to plan strategically, solve complex commercial issues, manage programmes or projects effectively and increase delivery confidence.
We have worked closely with DEFRA for several years managing its Waste Infrastructure Delivery Programme and to initiate its savings Programme in 2013/14, which has already secured £145 million of savings. We provide an interface between the policy of central government and local delivery. Our teams offer extensive technical, commercial and procurement experience gained across public and private sector environments. To find out more please click here.

The previous five reviews, focusing on the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber, North East, West Midlands and London can all be found in our case studies section below. We play a critical role in delivering the Welsh Government’s Waste Infrastructure Procurement Programmes, helping meet ambitious recycling and sustainability targets, whilst delivering value for money.

GUIDE TO POTENTIAL CORPORATE VEHICLES
In the current economic climate, local authorities are exploring all avenues, including new commercial opportunities, to deliver public services. To assist local authorities, Local Partnerships has produced the above “guide to potential corporate vehicles” as an introduction to some of the vehicles that can be used for collaboration and the delivery of services. It should be noted that these options are a means to an end, so firstly authorities must decide what it is they wish to achieve, when and with whom.

The Lichfield & Tamworth Waste Partnership (Shared services)OverviewAn independent report, commissioned by the Staffordshire Leaders & Chief
Executive’s Group in 2008, made the recommendation to assess the feasibility
of potential opportunities for improved effectiveness and shared efficiencies
between clusters of authorities within the Staffordshire Waste Partnership (SWP).
The Hertfordshire Waste Partnership ‘Consortia for Recycling Materials’OverviewHertfordshire Waste Partnership (HWP) is made up of 10 Waste Collection
Authorities (WCA) and the County Council.
The Kent Waste Partnership ‘East Kent Joint Waste Project’OverviewThe Kent Waste Partnership (KWP) comprises the 13 principal councils of Kent.
These are the twelve district councils in their roles as Waste Collection Authorities
(WCAs) and Kent County Council as the Waste Disposal Authority (WDA).
Wales Waste DisposalOverviewLocal Partnerships has played an integral role supporting the Welsh Government to develop and implement its national waste infrastructure procurement programme covering food and residual waste treatment
Delivering Efficiences in waste services in the East of EnglandOverviewThis is the sixth regional review undertaken by Local Partnerships focusing on efficiencies achieved in waste management. A total of 28 authorities from the East of England are included in this report, including district and borough councils, county councils and unitary authorities.
DELIVERING WASTE EFFICIENCIES IN THE WEST MIDLANDSOverviewThe 33 West Midlands authorities spend over £400m collecting, recycling and disposing over 2.6 million tonnes of municipal waste each year. Inevitably, as a result of financial austerity pressures, local authorities will need to identify considerable budget savings.
PARTNERSHIPS AND EFFICIENCIES REPORT FOR LONDONOverviewAs a result of the 2011 Spending Review, local authorities are required to identify considerable budget savings over the next three to four years.
DELIVERING WASTE EFFICIENCIES IN YORKSHIRE AND THE HUMBEROverviewThere are 22 authorities in Yorkshire and the Humber, a mixture of Unitary (5), Metropolitan (9), District (7) and County (1) councils. Like all authorities across the UK they continue to face testing times as resources are reduced but service expectations remain high.
DELIVERING WASTE EFFICIENCIES IN THE NORTH EASTOverviewThere are 12 authorities in the North East, all of which are Unitary and therefore have responsibility for both waste collection and disposal services. Like all authorities across the UK they continue to face testing times as resources are reduced but service expectations remain high.
DELIVERING WASTE EFFICIENCIES IN THE NORTH WESTOverviewGreat strides have been made in delivering efficiencies in budget, in order to protect public services, even enhance them, and this continues to be one of the biggest challenges local authorities face.
