See if Council recycling processes meet legal requirements

The law now requires councils to have separate collection arrangements for:

  • Glass
  • Metals
  • Paper
  • Plastics

The law requires all councils to assess their waste collection and disposal procedures. We must apply strict tests to make sure our processes meet the legal requirements.

We have completed a self-assessment of our current waste processes. The report gives details of our collection and disposal arrangements. It states whether our procedures meet the legal requirements, and any changes we may need to make.

The report states that Rotherham meets the law in our collection of paper, glass and metals. It is economically impracticable to introduce a separate plastics recycling collection at the moment.

We will review compliance every year, or if there are any changes to our recycling processes.
