Zero Waste Extension

Zero Waste Presteigne continuing until at least June 2011

Cwm Harry are pleased to announce that the Zero Waste Presteigne project will continue until at least June 2011. Unique in the UK, the local authority has handed over full responsibility for waste and recycling to the community of Presteigne and Norton to see how close they can get to Zero Waste.  The community are supported by Cwm Harry Land Trust, a local social enterprise. The community has already achieved a recycling rate of 67%, which compares to a rate of 45% for the same period in Wales as a whole and is just a whisker away from the Welsh target for 2025 of 70%.

Lee Price from Powys County Council said " the Powys Zero Waste Action Board were pleased to support this innovative project in Presteigne.   Our grant will support the operation through to June and we know that Cwm Harry are waiting to hear on other bids to allow them to complete a full second year."
