Moving from the UN Sustainable Development Goals to local ‘climate crisis’ talks, it’s time to stand up and make a change. So what can we do, and who is leading the way in the resources and waste sector?

Mickey Green, Managing Director @Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP)

Mickey Green has been managing director of Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) since September 2017. SWP was the first county wide partnership of waste collection and disposal authorities, and has had a long history of innovation; the first to roll out weekly kerbside food waste collection at scale, and the first to show residents exactly what happens to their recycling through an annual End Use Register. SWP were recognised in the national Resources and Waste Strategy as an exemplar for the quality of materials we collect through kerbside sort. Under Mickey’s leadership SWP have brought forward the end date of their current collection contract with Kier and procured a new 10 year collection contractor. Following a major re-fleet SWP will be adding in additional weekly separate recycling and with so little residual waste generated, collections will be undertaken every 3 weeks.
