Waste Service Consultation

West Northamptonshire Council would like to hear your views on the waste service.  They are developing a Resources and Waste Strategy that will set out our long-term plan of action, and how they intend to achieve further improvements to align with and meet proposed Government waste policy changes.

They are asking for your views about all the waste and street cleansing services that they operate. Your views will help the, shape the overall West Northamptonshire Resources and Waste Strategy for residents using household waste collection services.

The consultation can be found at https://westnorthants.citizenspace.com/cet/future-waste-services-in-west-northants/
