Recently, 6 leading waste management and resource organisations came together to outline their proposals for the industry in 2015. Writing a joint letter, which was sent out to all major political parties in the UK, these various boards and bodies have proposed what they would like to see after the general election takes place in May. Top of the bill includes the efficient use of resources, which we can aid with using our nationwide skip hire service at Skippy Nationwide!

What Does The Resource Industry Want In 2015?

The various bodies that contributed to this statement of intent, includes the following organisations:

  • Trade Association Group (TAG)
  • Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresearch Association (ABDA)
  • Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM)
  • Renewable Energy Association (REA)
  • Institution of Civic Engineers (ICE)
  • Environmental Services Association (ESA)

These organisations are part of an industry which generates some £12 billion per year for the UK's economy, as well as thousands of jobs. The letter established just exactly what this valuable job sector would like to see from politicians and policy makers after the big political event that is the general election.

“For the resource management industry to maximise the economic, social, and environmental benefits it can deliver for Britain, it needs to work in partnership with central and local government, and with regulators,” the letter read. “A supportive policy framework is essential if the industry is to invest in the new facilities needed to improve the efficient use of resources in the UK economy.”

So far, the main wishes of the resource industry are:

  • Establish an Office for Resource Management, headed by a Minister, to lead and coordinate government policy on resource efficiency and waste prevention across departments.
  • Expand the market for reused and recycled products and materials by reforming government procurement rules, putting appropriate economic incentives in place, and placing a sustained emphasis on public communication and engagement.
  • Stimulate private investment in new waste treatment, recycling and reprocessing facilities by setting long term policy goals and targets, working with industry and stakeholders to develop methods to achieve them.
  • Protect local communities, safeguard the environment, and reduce tax evasion by ensuring that enforcement bodies and local authorities are properly resourced to combat waste crime.

The group said will "continue to work collaboratively in the New Year to reinforce the important role this industry can play in securing sustainable, long-term, economic growth".
