We were unable to empty all of the brown bins due for collection across Ipswich yesterday. If your bin has not been emptied, please leave it out and we will try again. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The Government's revised Air Quality Strategy for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland was a direct response to the requirements of the Environment Act 1995. It set health-based standards and objectives covering seven pollutants.
Ipswich Borough Council must, by law, regulate certain types of factory and other activities such as dry cleaners. This is to reduce any pollution they may cause and, in particular, to help improve air quality.
