“Council staff continue to work around-the-clock to prepare for further severe storms to ensure the safety of residents, homes and businesses, shore up flood defences, and protect road networks and power supplies as much as possible."
“What works in urban centres is different to rural communities. We are pleased the Government has listened to the LGA and councils and decided not to significantly reduce the flexibilities in how councils collect waste from people’s homes."
“Councils are at the forefront of local sustainability action and through this programme and partnership with Crown Commercial Service, the LGA will be able to support councils with carbon reduction and adaptation measures.”
“For many councils, reducing their abilities to charge for the disposal of DIY waste will lead to funding reductions that will have to be passed on to reduced waste services popular with our residents."
