Waste Policy Tracker

Ahead of the development of a new Waste Strategy the DAERA has published a Waste policy tracker to act as a ‘one stop shop’ for stakeholders and members of the public to stay informed of the department’s ongoing waste policy development. A summary of the tracker alongside a list of related live or recently closed consultations can be viewed on this webpage.

The full policy tracker is also available to download here
Going forward the tracker will be updated on a quarterly basis.
