Sheffield City Council is a Unitary Local Authority. The vision of the Waste Management team is to reduce the environmental impact of Sheffield’s waste and to exceed the expectations of our customers. We have set objectives which capture the 27 actions in in our waste management strategy plan and they include, reducing Sheffield’s waste, helping residents and businesses to recycle, minimise Sheffield’s waste that goes to landfill and increase collaboration with research and industry partners to optimise our waste management strategies.

Gillian Charters (Head of Waste Management) and Alastair Black (Waste Strategy Officer) will take care of the seconded ESRs. They have already got significant experience in liaising with researchers and research students given their continuous involvement with USFD projects.
