This is a once-only chance to improve the environment for future generations.
petition is addressed to Hertfordshire County Council but also to the
ten district and borough councils via the Herts Waste Partnership.
half of our household waste is being recycled. Much of the remainder
could and should be recycled or composted – to prevent it being sent to
either landfill or incineration.
Our ability to maximise recycling
and composting is threatened by the possibility that Herts. County
Council will extend its waste management contract with Veolia to 2050,
locking us in to incineration and limiting the amount of recycling for
generations to come.
Please sign the petition to call on the County
Council to cancel the contract with Veolia and to increase the Council's
co-operation with the district and borough councils to boost recycling
rates across the county.
That way, we would:
• save valuable materials
• reduce haulage of waste
• avoid pollution of air and water
• protect wildlife
• create local jobs
• and realise the aim of 'Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’.
