Waste Reduction Strategy

Isles of Scilly Waste Reduction Strategy 2020-2030

How we deal with our materials, waste and resources now and in the future is one of the biggest challenges we face as an island community. 

We have come a long way to make better use of our resources through the introduction ot household and business kerbside recycling and the redevelopment of the Porthmellon Waste & Recycling Site, however, now more than ever, there is a necessity for us all to think and act on the pressures that wasting resources has on our environment and finances. The Isles of Scilly Waste Reduction Strategy comes at an exciting time as significant changes are happening both nationally and locally that are driving us all to be more ambitious and resourceful in how we manage our waste and resources.

The Isles of Scilly Waste Reduction Strategy sets out how we, as a community on the Isles of Scilly, intend to redice the amount of waste we produce and change the way we think about our resources. Only by working together can we make a real difference for the Isles of Scilly, its communities and its outstanding natural environment.
