Towards Zero Waste

Zero Waste 2040

Our management of material resources has come a long way in the last 20 years. Recycling levels have risen, and landfill has fallen, but in the next 20 years, we need to do even more.


Climate Action Plan 2022

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) Members declared a climate emergency on Friday 18th October 2019 whilst simultaneously agreeing to develop a new Zero Waste 2040 Strategy and an Action Plan for Resource and Waste Management at the earliest opportunity.

Circular Economy

Everyone can take part in the circular economy; from individuals to business, charities to governments. We can all explore ways to apply the principles of the circular economy to what they buy, use, and throw away.

Circular Economy in Business

The circular economy can benefit businesses by guiding them to become environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable, it reduces our impact on the earth and cares for our global society by reducing the number of resources taken from the earth and ending the need for waste.
