Repair or adapt

The best environmental choice is to repair, restore or adapt a product you already have. You may need professional help but it could still be cheaper than something new.

About Us

Northamptonshire has a population of 692,000 (as at 2012) who live in an area of over 914 square miles, and we produce 354,524 tonnes of municipal waste per year.

The Northamptonshire Waste Partnership (NWP) is a partnership of all eight Northamptonshire local authorities and was set up to improve joint working arrangements on waste management matters. Another key objective is to improve the effective delivery of waste services across the county and reduce waste going to landfill.

Through the partnership member councils have adopted a local waste strategy outlining a joint approach to managing the county's waste over the next decade, taking into account developments in government policy and progress made in Northamptonshire.

Waste collection plays a key role in the sustainability agenda whilst providing all households with an essential public service.

As a highly visible frontline service, councils are keen to identify ways of delivering the service more efficiently and cost effectively. As such we are committed to providing waste and recycling services which are good value for money and which meet the needs of our residents.
