Portsmouth City Council is a part of Project Integra - a partnership of local authorities in Hampshire working together to improve waste collection and disposal.
This enables local authorities to make best use of shared infrastructure and maximise recycling through collective bargaining on contracts for the sale of recyclable materials. More information is available from the websites listed below:
Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) - an organisation that supports local authorities on waste issues
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) - Guidance for businesses and organisations on how waste disposal is regulated and what they need to do to comply
Waste Data Flow - where local authorities report data on waste and recycling to the government
Domestic waste collections are contracted to Biffa, while disposal is handled by Hampshire's waste disposal contractor Veolia Environmental Services.
