Waste and recycling
The county council has two separate responsibilities for waste: waste disposal and waste planning.
Household waste and recycling is collected by district and borough councils.
It is then disposed of by the county council, which also runs Household Waste Recycling Centres.
For practical advice about waste and recycling please visit the WasteAware website.
