Municipal enterprise and wholesale-style co-operatives are needed to tackle some of the issues facing the waste commission. For example, can Newcastle City Council co-operative with other councils to finance and build processing centres in the UK that will both reduce the costs of sending waste abroad and bring environmental benefits? Surely Newcastle University would be a more than willing partner in brokering such a project.

is there to be action in either replacing the bins that were removed from the green spaces or having a plan for the removal of the rubbish that is now present. simply expecting people to walk further to a bin is a non starter and is a disgrace if this the policy going forward. i live near kenton school -yes one of the biggest schools in england there was 5 bins around enterences on the south side, all been removed with only one at a bus stop 50m away on one side of the main road. the kids have now taken to throwing the rubbish on the ground or using the large plannter as a bin. can someone take ownership if the issue please?
