Lord de Mauley targets waste prevention

The recently-appointed resource management minister, Lord de Mauley, has said waste prevention is his ‘highest priority’.

Speaking at the WRAP annual conference, de Mauley encouraged the audience to “deliver growth while improving our environment”. He said: “If we can keep our economy’s resources higher in the waste hierarchy we can retain their economic value to the benefit of all in the UK.”

In what was his first speech on waste, the new minister promised to continue the work of Lord Taylor, his predecessor at Defra.

“Government needs to do what we can to help remove barriers, create markets and promote the growth we aspire to. I am particularly excited about the Waste Prevention Plan we will be developing over the course of the next year.

“There are many wonderful ways we can treat waste as a valuable resource, but never letting the stuff that forms our economy become waste in the first place is clearly the highest priority.”
