A New Waste Plan is being prepared to provide for Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole’s waste management needs. The Plan will aim to support recycling and the conversion of waste into valuable resources wherever possible. It will also determine where new facilities are needed and, once adopted, will provide the policy framework for determining planning applications for waste management facilities.
