In addition to sharing good practice and encouraging collaborative learning across the low level waste (LLW) management sector, a key strand of National Waste Programme (NWP) activity is improving programme governance; enhancing how transformational change and national strategy delivery is planned, reported and communicated.
In this section
Each of the four NDA waste-producing sites produce rolling 5-year Joint Waste Management Plans (JWMPs). These are developed in collaboration with LLWR. JWMPs identify projects and activities to support the embedding and implementation of the Strategy and good practice within these organisations. JWMPs also provide a 5 year forecast of waste arisings.
Joint Waste Management Plans:
Progress, which supports national strategic goals, is tracked by the National Programme Office and reported to stakeholders.
A variety of regular collaborative meetings are held to enable the sharing of information amongst stakeholders on progress, threats, opportunities, learning, good practice and new developments.
The documents below provide a summary of the main NWP meetings and events, as well as meeting terms of reference.
The Delivery Overview Group (DOG) meeting is a key element of the NWP governance structure and is held every 6 months. Around 40 stakeholder organisations are invited to participate in the meeting and to share information, issues, case studies, good practice and learning from experience, as well as to work on joint projects or cross-industry issues.
Delivery Overview Group documents:
Information is also shared via a variety of publications available under the Waste Practitioner Support and Guidance section of this site.
The National Programme Office publishes a range of waste metrics and information from waste producers to track progress to ensure the programme benefits are delivered.
The Waste Metric Dashboard summarises progress on the successful diversion of waste away from direct disposal and on the environmental performance of the NWP.
Waste metric dashboards for the current and earlier financial years can be accessed by clicking on the Dashboard image.
This comprehensive guide provides a summary of the aims, vision, mission, role and organisation of the NWP, as well as providing additional detail on the NWP programme arrangements and procedures: The Programme Manual.
