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 at DAERA Waste Policy Tracker | daera-ni.gov.uk.
Going forward the tracker will be updated on a quarterly basis.
